Hi folks,

Is it possible to add a new line after each attribute of a node with dom4j, just to get the attributes one under another in my xml source?

Hi, Cristian. It seems that Dom4j does not handle new lines after every attribute. But it does handle formatted output.

for the more detailed information about formatting possibilities the Dom4j provide.
To reach the thing You need, it might be helpful to reload some methods in

Or the other way to solve the problem - is to output the XML content into string buffer and then add some format refinements using regular expressions.
