am not sure if you are referring to DOM and if yes which interface you are talking about?.
I remember havign seen such a method in a Xalan helper class called XPathAPI (which works on Xpaths to select a node) and is not a w3c standard interface.
If you can tell how you used this method in ASP we can probably suggest an equivlent java souliton or api.
I found
org.apache.xpath.XPathAPI
class to be extremely useful even though it's parser specific. It has methods which can get certain things(searches) done (since it works on Xpaths) in a easier way than DOM.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
