I ran across this interesting post while searching for tips for
sending a JDOM document from a SOAP service to a SOAP client:

The elegance of this solution is quite appealing.  However, a
version of the build() method of the SAXBuilder class that takes
an argument of type Response seems not to exist.

How does one address this?

Thank you.
