How to change the encoding of XML document using Java program.
I am using following code snippet to create document object and it returns me the prolog as "<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>"
I am using org.apache.xerces.dom parser.
Document doc = new DocumentImpl(); Element rootNode = doc.createElement("parent"); doc.appendChild(rootNode);
How can i change the encoding of above document object.
Thanks for your time.

How are you doing output of this document to a file? It seems to me that internally the DOM will all be in Unicode and the file encoding is established in the output method. Look at the Transformer properties - there is an ENCODING property.
