XmlBeans and DOM Listener

I have an application UI that uses XmlBeans to parse an XML document and display the parsed "XmlObjects" in a exploreresque treeview. XmlBeans doesn't provide much support for eventing so I am grabbing the "Document's" DomNode to employ DOM's eventing support. From there, I am getting the document's root element via getDocumentElement(). I then try to cast this element to EventTarget so I can add to the interface my However, a ClassCastException is occurring where the cast occurs from Element to EventTarget. Below is a snippet:

Any help is much appreciated - Thanks!
