Zav, you may want to look into some of the alternative document models available. I
give a list along with my performance comparison at

I'd personally like to see a new release of JDOM, especially if the developers feel
they've made significant performance enhancements. I'm going to update my performance
comparison with the latest figures and some additional tests within the next week or
so, and JDOM is the only model which hasn't had a new release since the original

I don't want to use the current CVS version for the performance comparison because
that's a moving target subject to change on a daily basis.
