No. I think Sun states for their VM that applications should not use 
classes in the com.sun domain. Even worse come Java 7 there's a chance 
that using such a class could trigger GPL (depends on details of the 
classpath exception which I haven't looked at).

I thought there were standard apis to the Xpath engine or is that just 
for the XML parser?
