I'm not really sure what you're trying to do but could you just write a
class that has a method that takes a DocumentFragment and email address list
and use the JavaMail API to send it out?
If so then just create an XSP that sends the standard XSL transformation to
the browser and then either spawn a thread and have it send out the email or
just send it from the XSP page itself.

I apologize if this is not what you're trying to accomplish.
