I'm currently using werken.xpath together with jdom, and it works just
I've written a simple swing application that shows an xml file into a
JTree, with an JEditField in which you can type an XPath expression. The
nodes that match that expression shows up selected (usefull to debug
your xpath expressions, expecially if you're using xsl...)
If someone is interested, let me know; it's a short application but not
*that short* to be sent as an attachement.
