I am wondering if there is a way to generate the xml from java
i mean that after creating an element using this code

i get <element>text of element</element>

or do i have to type them each time like
system.out.println("<"+element.getTag +">"+element.getTextNode()+"</");

If you have a Document object in memory you can use a Transformer to output it as a stream to a file or buffer in memory.
See these classes:
