The JDOM project provides some links to resources. Haven't used JDOM myself so can't really help further.

Hi Melly,
Try to load jdom-b9 version and after unzipping it, add the jdom.jar file which is in build directory to the classpath.Better if you add xalan.jar and xerces.jar of lib directory to the classpath.
Read the 14 chapter from here.

All the best

Thanx.I already started off with jdom by going thru the docs.Right now just stuck with ResultSetBuilder where I get resultset from database and then my output is an xml file.I need to get jdom-contrib which contains this class.Did that also and included the jdom-b9-contrib into my classpath also.But when i do an import org.jdom.contrib.input.ResultSetBuilder I get an error saying that this particular class is not found.Is it clash of naming
coz I also import org.jdom.* which is from the (jdom.jar) file.Plz Help.
I agree. Here's the link:
