Subject RE: JDom
Date Mon, 05 Mar 2001 18:32:00 GMT

I had a question/observation about moving to JDOM.  When using
SOAP in a message oriented fashion I tend to use tools like 
XSLT and XPath to process the messages.  Currently the Xalan 
package from apache works on a DOM implementation, therefore a
incoming message is processed by using existing DOM (created by
apache SOAP implementation) to transform (via XSLT) and access
data (via XPath) using the existing DOM.  

My knowledge of JDOM is limited, but doesn't moving to JDOM mean
that XSLT processing must marshaled, then passed to an input 
source for XSLT, parsed into an (stree or xerces DOM) then processed.
The same also seems to hold true for accessing the document via XPath
(until JDOM has an XPath implementation which I understand is the next
release).  So in both these cases it seems like the move to JDOM will 
actually make the performance worse not better.

I guess my concern is that the move to JDOM has the implication of loosing
all of the other tools that depend on the DOM data structure.  Is there
any chance we could support both?  Having something like a IEnvelope
that could be implemented with both a JDOM and DOM implementation?
