Basically I have formatted and indented xml and I want to convert that to a unformatted and non-indented , single line xml. For example how can I convert this
<note> <to>Tove</to> <from>Jani</from> <heading>Reminder</heading> <body>Don't forget me this weekend!</body> </note>
<note><to>Tove</to><from>Jani</from><heading>Reminder</heading><body>Don't forget me this weekend!</body></note>
. I want to resuse any xml parser api for achieving this. Can anyone please help me?

You could read it into a DOM, then delete any nodes that are text nodes that contain only whitespace. Or you could write an XSLT template that copies all nodes except text nodes that contain only whitespace.
I agree. Here's the link:
