JDOM is a tree model. Nothing more. JDOM only supports
Schema as far as the parser used to construct that tree
supports Schema validation.

I think that there is confusion among the JDOM users 
about exactly what JDOM is. I've seen similar questions 
on the Xerces mailing lists. This situation should be 
rectified via documentation if it hasn't already been 
done. And perhaps the marketing statements for JDOM
need to be revised because I think that they are
misleading and confusing users.
