Yes, it is indeed similar, but do you have examples?
I could not find getAttribute(name)

I tried to make my API as similar as possible to JDOM, because
- I think JDOM is easy to use
- the API should be easy to learn for JDOM users
- I was hoping it might be included in JDOM

Regarding the last issue:
I am wondering if the JDOM implementors do not want to have a
streaming API or if this is just the wrong mailing list to ask this
Can anybody enlighten me?

I think there is no reason to make Stax as part of the name.
Stax is an implementation technique for your API.
(I have used Stax for my API as well, but dropped it since it wasn't
faster than SAX)
