Peter thanks again for your newer solution.

Below I also give my final approach
($Version Number->5.2)
(Pentium 4, CPU 2.80 GHz, 512MB Ram)

Needs["NumericalMath`BesselZeros`"]
h[x_] := Tan[BesselJ[0, x]]
Needs["NumericalMath`BesselZeros`"]
lst[n_] := Prepend[BesselJZeros[0, n], 0];
int[n_, i_, nopts___] := NIntegrate[h[x], {x, lst[n][[i]], lst[n][[i +
1]]}, nopts]
tab[n_, nopts___] := Table[int[n, i, nopts], {i, 1, n - 1}]
sumint[n_, nopts___] := SequenceLimit[FoldList[Plus, 0, tab[n, nopts]]]

(Prepend[Timing[sumint[#1, PrecisionGoal -> 32, WorkingPrecision ->
(6*32)/5]], #1] & ) /@ (2^Range[2, 7])
{{4, 0.375*Second, 1.3643699115048195797`2.1072099696478674}, {8,
2.062000000000012*Second,
   1.4544903415612941044`4.816479930623699}, {16,
7.8279999999999745*Second,
1.4545130030320762838486550491`12.34222982222323},
  {32, 13.297000000000025*Second,
1.4545130030326107638283270574106180434`23.480339661790534},
  {64, 28.546999999999912*Second,
1.45451300303261076382832929894487094148`24.98548964011044},
  {128, 67.82800000000009*Second,
1.45451300303261076382832936146487729718`26.189609622766366}}
