I have noticed that creating new Documents and then writing these
documents to an outputStream have not always gotten top priority. I have
noticed the following over the different parsers I have used:
xml4j 1.1.6 -- the old parser from IBM -- we had TXDocument which used to
have printWithFormat method.
xerces 2.0.0 alpha -- no support at all.
xerces 2.0.1 -- there is an XML serializer with which we can do it.
This is a functionality which I require almost regularly, and I almost
always find difficult to find. Also none of the examples provided also
talk about this. I would like to ask why this is so??
Also it will be good if someone could check if this is the way of doing it
using Xerces 2.0.1,
DocumentBuilderFactory factory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance ();
docBuilder = factory.newDocumentBuilder ();
Document doc = docBuilder.newDocument ();
Element el = doc.createElement ("root");
FileOutputStream outStream = new FileOutputStream ("test.xml");
XMLSerializer serializer = new XMLSerializer ();
serializer.writeNode (outStream, doc);
