[jdom-interest] XPATH

Dear All,

I have been looking to use XPath within JDOM to stop code bloat (i.e.
instead of calling getchild repeatedly). I have noted the werken, Jaxen &
SaxPath code. 

A) werken seems to be deprecated in favour of the other 2.
B) I note from the JDOM home page that 1.1 is oging to be doing XPath.

What do people here recomend (a) between the 2 existing non-deprecated code
bases & (b) relative to "native JDOM" stuff if one was looking to put some
XPATH stuff into a piece of code which at the moment uses JDOM exclusively
for XML manipulation/interaction.

Wait? Go with Jaxen?

It isn't a killer but it's tedious to know exactly where in the tree I want
to be & thus to have to call getRoot followed by many getChild statements
(or one long one).
