[jdom-interest] Parsing XML with JDOM

There's a bunch of ways to do this, one being:

Element oRoot = oDoc.getRootElement();
List items = oRoot.getChildren("item");
for (Iterator it = items.iterator(); it.hasNext(); ) {
  Element item = (Element) it.next();
  List subItems = item.getChildren("subitem");
  for (Iterator it2 = subItems.iterator(); it.hasNext(); ) {
    Element subItem = (Element) it2.next();
    System.out.println(subItem.getAttributeValue("period")+" for
+"item.getAttributeValue("name")+" is "+subItem.getText());

I'm trying to get the children of children out of this XML file and I'm
having a heck of a time.  I've read every website you could possibly
of, and cannot figure out how to pull out Children out of Children.  I
attached my Java file, which can pull out the root and child nodes, but
children of the children.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  And yes, I
I'm missing brackets at the end.  How do I get the subitem and it's

I have an XML file like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
  <item type="stock" name="XM">
      <subitem period="fiveyear">0.20</subitem>
      <subitem period="tenyear">0.40</subitem>
   <item type="stock" name="Sirius">
      <subitem period="fiveyear">0.20</subitem>
      <subitem period="tenyear">0.40</subitem>
