JDOM's latest from CVS includes XPath support (see package org.jdom.xpath) and 
includes Jaxen as default XPath engine.

Many of the performance issues with Jaxen can be addressed by compiling XPath 
expressions once and reusing them. Reusing Jaxen XPaths divides by 2 the 
expression evaluation time. JDOM's Xpath supports XPath variables to ease 
building reusable generic expressions.

Hope this helps,
