Since that document refers to version 0.7beta, and at present we're at
version 1.0, I wouldn't give much to the performance measures taken in
this comparison. Generally, the versions compared there aren't really up
to date (article is dated Sep 2001).
Having said this, my personal experience during the development process
of JDOM was, that many parts of a program which include XML processing
code, aren't really fast. And I think that's it what most
implementations have in common. I also realized, that much of the
performance issues could be solved by replacing the parser or
transformer through testing which one behaves best. It mostly depends on
what you're doing with your XML. There are many packages out there,
which were designed for a special purpose and high performance.
Maybe you could give us an insight in what you intend to do with your
code, that would help a lot in choosing the right tools.
