XUpdate is designed essentially for updating documents within XML databases.
For updating standalone documents, the usual approach is to use XSLT to
transform the old document to a new document, which you can then use to
overwrite the old document if you wish. XSLT has a well-defined Java API
(JAXP) which is supported by three or four different XSLT processing
engines, including my own Saxon product.
