I haven't run any recently, but you can see the comparisons from a 
couple of years ago at 
http://www.sosnoski.com/opensrc/xmlbench/results.html I think both 
Xerces and JDOM have improved some since then, but I doubt it's enough 
to change the comparison in any major way.

The bottom line is that you shouldn't expect any performance or memory 
size improvements in going from DOM to JDOM (and quite possibly some 
loss of performance). As I see it JDOM's advantage is mainly in 
supplying an API that's easier for Java developers to understand.
