To me it sounds like you are not using the file the way XML was 
intended, and possibly, you shouldn't try to parse with an XML parser 
but rather a proprietary "data file" parser.

Please note that JDOM is not itself a parser, but uses the underlying 
SAX parser, such as Xerces. If you are looking into customized 
parsing, you better look at the underlying parser.
