XPath will certainly help. Check out jaxen.org.

This is really a Java problem, not a JDOM problem. There are a number of
approaches that could work. You basically need to go through all the AAA
elements and parse the values of the id attributes. org.jdom.Attribute
has a utility method, getIntValue() that might help.
