I have a requirement of parsing an XML file that is not more then 500 kb. I am currently using JDOM, because I am comfortable with it. If anyone has any complaint or bad experience with JDOM or any other comment ...to use somethign else please mention.. Cuz my app is going in production soon.. cheers.

One possible reason for not using JDOM is that it is not part of the standard Java runtime. (Although at one time there was a suggestion JDOM would become part of the standard.)

You would have to make sure that all sites using your code also have the JDOM library of the correct version.

The standard library DOM methods are stable and will be there for Java 6, 7, 8 etc etc, which is one reason I always use them.
