I stuck to the W3C DOM as used by Sun and Apache parsers because it is a standard and thats what Sun supports. As I understand it, JDOM is so popular that Sun may support it in the future.

Here is an exerpt from an article on IBM developerWorks site at http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/java/library/j-jdom/ talking about the future of JDOM as a standard extention to java:
The official 1.0 release of JDOM may coincide with its continuing evolution in the Java Community Process. Submitted as JSR-102, JDOM has been approved for eventual inclusion in the core Java platform, with this comment from Sun: "JDOM does appear to be significantly easier to use than the earlier APIs, so we believe it will be a useful addition to the platform." According to the JSR, a 1.0 release might see JDOM's packaging change from "org.jdom" to "javax.xml.tree". While the future certainly looks positive, developers may eventually have to retrofit their code to work with the new version.
