Support for DOM and other external tree models
Saxon now supports the XOM object model (see http://www.xom.nu/) alongside DOM, JDOM, and the native Saxon object model.
As with the JDOM interface, you can wrap a XOM Document node in a wrapper that makes it into a
DocumentInfo and a JAXP
Source object, which can then be used
as input to methods such as the JAXP
transform() method; it can also be returned by a
URIResolver in response to calls on the
The new JAXP 1.3 XPath API also offers support for accessing XOM documents using XPath.
The XOM interface to Saxon was written by Wolfgang Hoschek, using the existing JDOM interface as a starting point.
To use the XOM interface, you need to instal XOM itself, and you also need to have
on your class path.
