I think you need to use something less "high-level" than JDOM.
You should take a look at SAX compliant parsers (please correct me if I 
am wrong or not precise enough.)

SAX is an XML parser specification based on event sending, that is why 
you can handle very big files with SAX.  On the other hand, DOM "needs" 
to load the whole model into memory which is best for small documents.
