I just wanted to mention, just because no one has mentioned it that I've
seen is that some of the JDOM users are restricted to earlier JDK/JRE. I
use JDOM both in the desktop environment and in a restricted (CLDC)
environment. In the CLDC environment, the latest JVM released is
"1.3-like". Sun is currently working on a new JSR for a "1.4-like" CLDC
that I haven't seen progress on for some time, so I suspect that a
"1.5-like" CLDC is quite a ways off.
I use 1.5 and the new 1.5 features in my other development projects and
see the benefit in an all 1.5-style approach, so I am very understanding
of both sides of this issue, since I am on both sides of it.
I really don't know if there is a good solution to this. Something
doesn't seem that great about a wrapper, and it seems like it would be a
lot more trouble than it's worth. There may be some issues with
performance (DOM environments are already not known for their speed and
memory usage), so if someone built a wrapper library that had a
1.5-style interface but used the underlying JDOM code, there would be a
lot of duplication, and possibly more objects in memory (maybe double in
