Sorry I got a real simple question.
I wanted to create a new xml document and then input elements to the document using dom.
My codes goes something like this:
DocumentBuilderFactory factory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
DocumentBuilder builder = factory.newDocumentBuilder();
document = builder.newDocument();

Element root=document.createElement("Pip3");
Element fromRole = document.createElement("fromRole");
Is my codes going the right direction? If so how to name the xml file?Please advice. Thanks in advance.
