I am expecting something like



I do not want to use external jars/libs/apis like XStream or castor to do the above.

<root> <element> <name>Name</name> <value>Value</value> </element></root>

Create a document.Create an element with name root and append to document, continue the same to create the structure and for adding Name , create text node and append to element name.

For creating various xml nodes use Document as factory.(it has all the required methods.)
