```(at least in Mathematica 7.0)

try

Integrate[1/x,{x,a,b}]

Also

Integrate[BesselJ[n, b*x], {x, 0, Infinity},   Assumptions -> Re[n] > -1 ]

which returns an expression including this ....

b^(-2 + n) (b^2)^(1/2 - n/2)

which should be possible to simplify.  For example, for b>0, the
expression is 1/b.

maybe  1/b * If[b>0, 1 ,  -(-1)^n]  or so.

I've been playing with integration of expressions involving Bessel
functions.  Mathematica is sometimes surprising, on both sides of the
ledger -- (Yes we Can and No we Can't).
