They're not parser dependent.  JDOM can read any DOM and write any DOM. 
All you have to do is pass the right adapter for the DOM version you're
using (adapters exist for all popular parsers in org.jdom.adapters). 
It's a quirk of DOM that implementations aren't directly compatible, so
you need this level of indirection.
