The best way to handle large XML files is to process them by small subsets. To
help with that, JDOM provides (in the jdom-contrib module) the
org.jdom.contrib.input.scanner.ElementScanner class which is a SAXBuilder
replacement that allows defining subsets as XPath-like expressions and
notifies listeners whenever a subset has been parsed. Once the listeners
return, ElementScanner does not keep any reference to the subset so that it
becomes elligible for garbage collection.
