Hello,
I am using DOMXML parser i have added sample code
======================================================================
DocumentBuilderFactory dbf = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
DocumentBuilder db = dbf.newDocumentBuilder();
// Instead of parsing an XML document, however, just create an empty
// document that you can build up yourself.
Document document = db.newDocument();

// Now build a document tree using DOM methods
Element book = document.createElement("book"); // Create new element
book.setAttribute("id", "javanut4"); // Give it an attribute
document.appendChild(book); // Add to the document
for(int i = 1; i <= 3; i++) { // Add more elements
Element chapter = document.createElement("chapter");
Element title = document.createElement("title");
title.appendChild(document.createTextNode("Chapter " + i));
chapter.appendChild(title);
chapter.appendChild(document.createElement("para"));
book.appendChild(chapter);
}
==========================================================================

Does org.w3c.dom.Element.setAttribute(String name, String value) not do what you're trying to do?
