Yes. Shouldn't be too big, though, unless you have enough memory.

Retrieve the object and use e.g. jxpath or the dom java api on it.

Wait - you want to generate your XSP from a session attribute? Doesn't
sound too good to me. Remember that it needs to be compiled everytime
it changes.... Apart from that, a source seems to be right.

Why don't you include the DOM from your XSP (or from a transformer). I
believe the session framework supports similar things. In addition,
the util logicsheet lets you include an object as XML (if it
implements certain interfaces, DOM should be OK).
