[jdom-interest] Should I convert to/from org.jdom.Document

I primarily use JDOM for loading configuration data.  To that end I have
a Configuration interface and then one of the concrete implementations
wraps a JDOM document.  The interface includes methods like
getChildren(), getChildValue(), getValue(), etc.  I can then use
different implementations (such as pull data from a database) very

I have a quick design question for the group. When using an XML parser
such as JDOM, is it better for the application to work directly with the
document tree (such as org.jdom.Document) or should it use an
application specific model and convert to/from the document tree? What
are the pros/cons of the two approaches, where does one make sense over
the other?
