public class XOMXPath
extends BaseXPath

An XPath implementation for the XOM model.

This is the main entry point for matching an XPath against a XOM tree. You create a compiled XPath object, then match it against one or more context nodes using the BaseXPath.selectNodes(java.lang.Object) method, as in the following example:

   Object xomNode = ...;              // Document, Element, etc.
   XPath  path    = new XOMXPath("a/b/c");
   List   results = path.selectNodes(xomNode);
