public class XOMXPath
extends BaseXPath

An XPath implementation for the XOM model

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

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