JDOM relies on TrAX to perform the transformation.
The javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory Java system property determines
which XSLT engine TrAX uses. Its value should be the fully qualified name
of the implementation of the abstract javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory
class. Values of this property for popular XSLT processors include:

    * Saxon 6.x: com.icl.saxon.TransformerFactoryImpl
    * Saxon 7.x: net.sf.saxon.TransformerFactoryImpl
    * Xalan: org.apache.xalan.processor.TransformerFactoryImpl
    * jd.xslt: jd.xml.xslt.trax.TransformerFactoryImpl
    * Oracle: oracle.xml.jaxp.JXSAXTransformerFactory

This property can be set in all the usual ways a Java system property can be
set. TrAX picks from them in this order:

   1. Invoking System.setProperty( "javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory",
   2. The value specified at the command line using the
      -Djavax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory=classname option to the
      java interpreter
   3. The class named in the lib/ properties file in the JRE
      directory, in a line like this one:


   4. The class named in the
      file in the JAR archives available to the runtime
   5. Finally, if all of the above options fail, a default implementation is
      chosen. In Sun's JDK 1.4, this is Xalan 2.2d10.
