[jdom-interest] JDOM vs electric

You can see my performance comparison on XML developerWorks (including 
JDOM, dom4j, EXML, etc.), at 
There's a second article comparing usage that's been turned in to IBM 
since the beginning of October; hopefully it'll be published soon. :-)

I've got updated results all graphed up and ready for publication on my 
web site, whenever I can take the time to put the text together. Nothing 
has changed with JDOM since the earlier results were published on 
developerWorks, though - it's still beta 7. Whenever JDOM beta 8 is 
released it sounds like it should show some improvements.
