IMHO that's an ugly approach ...rather I would try to improve jxpath.

When caching reflection you can get the same speed as native (at least
in some areas). Another option would be to generate byte code internally
(like XSLTC does) Going through the source code stage just to avoid
reflection speed sounds like the wrong approach to me.

...but even more important - if you want to optimize try to optimize
the larger picture first. Usually you earn much more when improving
the algorithm instead of the plain code.

My 2 cents
