| I need to pull loads of info from a DB and generate some XML

| a 'manual' process)...or is there some certain recommended way of
| building the document in memory and then writing it out at once?

Writing a SAX DocumentHandler that generates the document to a
PrintWriter from the events you trigger can be a nice way of doing
it. That way you can often easily pipe the generation through some
other process should you later need to.

Another solution in your case may be DB2XML:
