<p><a NAME="Introduction"></a>
The <i>JXPath</i> Component contains a set of Java classes that provide
static utility methods useful in manipulating Java classes that conform
to the JavaBeans Specification naming patterns for bean properties in a
dynamic fashion using the XPath syntax. It also supports Java collections,
objects with Dynamic Properties (like Map, ServletContext etc) and mechanism
for adding support for additional object models.
<p>An innovative and unique feature of this component is the unification
of reference syntax between DOM and Java.
