Yes, JDOM is compatible with Java 1.4.2 (It may even still be 
compatible with 1.2 or 1.3, but I'm not sure of that.)

tar.gz is usually used in the Unix world, zip in Windows. Either way, 
you have to download and uncompress the files. When you try to compile 
the code from the previous developer, you'll undoubtedly get some 
errors. You don't really need to know which version s/he was using, you 
just have to identify the inconsistencies and fix them. The JavaDoc in 
the download or on the jdom.org site will probably be helpful as you do
