JDOM provides a complete, Java-based solution for accessing, manipulating, and outputting XML data from Java code. These wiki pages are designed to contain development type information. These pages are more 'dynamic' than the official pages at www.jdom.org.
Have a look in the right margin of this page, and other JDOM GitHub wiki pages for an index in to the most important pages.
Version 2.0.0 takes all the functionality of JDOM 1.1.3 and makes it easier to access in a modern Java way, using Generics and other Java language features introduced with Java 5. In addition, it adds a number new features not available in JDOM 1.x. A description is available of the major new features.
An introduction to JDOM from a version 2.0.0 perspective is now available as a 'Primer'.
If you are upgrading from JDOM 1.x to JDOM 2.0.0, there is a document describing the migration issues, and methods for adapting your code to JDOM 2.0.0.
This is a recommended upgrade for anyone still using JDOM 1 versions and are unable to upgrade to 2.0.0. JDOM 1.x versions are in a maintenance mode only, and only critical bug fixes will be applied.
