I'm trying to use a JDOM XPath object to perform the following query on a
document containing a dateTime field.

My xpath string is:


and I'm getting an exception at instanciation

org.jdom.JDOMException: Invalid XPath expression:
"xs:dateTime(@lastTime)-xs:dayTimeDuration('PT0.001S')": Unexpected '('

I've tried setting the "xs" namespace, but I can't do this until the XPath
is already instanciated, so that's already too late.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
