You're comparing completely different things. Saxon provides XSLT, XPath,
XQuery, and XML Schema processing either against its own internal tree model,
or against external tree models such as DOM, XOM, and JDOM2. Products like XOM
and JDOM2 provide a tree model, plus APIs that allow you to invoke an XPath or
XSLT processor (typically the 1.0 processor that comes with the JDK) against
that tree model.

If you want a good versatile XSLT/XPath/XQuery processor, use Saxon. If you
want a good general-purpose tree model, use JDOM2 or XOM. If you want both,
use them both, separately or together.
