[jdom-interest] Build From a String Performance Problem?

Probably 2.8 seconds of those 3 seconds are spend loading the Xerces
classes.  It's a very big parser designed to optimize running speed not
startup speed.  Try a second load once the JVM is "warmed" with the
Xerces classes and it's probably much faster.  But you'll also notice
JDOM lets you plug in any parser you want to the SAXBuilder constructor.
