You are right, but W3 is currently working on it see:

The following XSLT engines have Java classes you can use to return a node and use in your application.

a. http://xml.apache.org/xalan-j/index.html
b. http://users.iclway.co.uk/mhkay/saxon/

There may be others but we have not tried them.

I think there are also some stand alone xpath engines, but you will have to search the web for them.
