Well, I'm still here. And I hope Rolf is; yes, it's difficult when you get no response to messages - it's like when someone who sends you a Christmas card every year stops sending them, you wonder what's happened. Memo to self, don't do that to other people!

Picking up a piece of software or a piece of process that you haven't touched for years is always difficult; there's a high cost in "opening the box" compared with the cost of making the small change you want to make. Can't offer to help, I'm afraid. We aren't active JDOM users, we just make sure the integration keeps working.
