Converting the tree to a file .

Hey all.
I have developed my application to create a DOM tree in the memory (this tree is not a result of paresing an XML document, I created this tree by adding elements and attributes to the tree).
how can I convert this tree to a file like : results.xml on my hard drive ?

You can use identity transform to serialize your DOM document into raw XML. Also, if you're using Xerces and don't mind importing org.apache.* stuff in your code, it also has a class named XMLSerializer which can produce a whole lot better-looking XML than the javax.transform.* API (and faster).
