[jdom-interest] Have you had success with JDOM?

At Signature Domains, Inc. (http://www.signaturedomains.com/) we are using
JDOM in production environments for two different purposes.  The first is
for loading and storing configuration information. Our newer applications
(both desktop and back-end) which need to load and store configuration
information are using JDOM.  It is so easy to use that it makes this task
trivial.  Eventually I plan to convert all of our applications so that they
use JDOM for configuration management.

We also use JDOM for XML-based partner registration.  This system has not
yet been put under the kind of load that would really test JDOM, but it has
worked well up to this point.

I also use JDOM for all of my open source applications

I have never really put JDOM through tests with large documents, so I do not
know how it would hold up in that situation.  The good news is if you ever
reach a point where your documents are that big you can always just use a
SAX parser directly.

I am a development lead on a project that will be relying heavily on XML.
We have chosen JDOM as our API for working with XML, however management is
full of questions about the fact that it is still beta, unsupported, etc..
I'm sure many of you have encountered this before.

I would like to hear from those of you that have already used JDOM in a
production environment.  I need to harvest your opinions, anecdotes,
mistakes and disasters so that I can reassure our management that we are, in
fact, on the right path.

I would appreciate it if you were willing to talk with one of our managers
about JDOM, but it is certainly not a requirement.

Please post your stories to the list so that others may benefit from them as
well.  If you have already posted a story, please forward a reference to
that posting.

Thank you very much!
