Hi

               I am developing application for one of our clients, where we use java and xml extensively.

               I wonder if i should consider using JDOM for xml related stuff like reading and writing.

               My main concern is that - JDOM is not really a commercial product and neither is it with a someone like
               sourceforge.net. What if JDOM simply goes out of development or circulation in near future ?

               In summary the question is, are people using JDOM in their commercial applications ?

               Pls let me know !

I'm using it in a commercial application - as far as I'm aware, it's in the process of being adopted as part of the Sun distribution. Have a look on the website ( www.jdom.org ) it mentions something about it.

As far as JDOM is concerned, I've been very impressed with it. It's my first foray into XML and Java and the learniong curve is not at all steep. I can't comment on performance as I've not carried out any comparative testing, but it's fast enough for us even if we have schema validation switched on.

Thanks. I too found it to be incredibly useful.

My query is more with respect to whether people world wide are adopting it in their commercial applications ?

yeah, we use it too.  I wouldn't worry about it going out of production, I don't think that'll happen. Also if it does its no big deal, your code will still run with the build you currenty have anyway.
