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.
