Can some one please let me know if there is a utility/method to convert a DOM node to an XML. I have manipulated the Node object and I want to see it's contents. Can I print it in the form of an XML?
Thank you

It looks to me like you can create a javax.xml.transform.dom.DOMsource from a Node and then use a Transformer to process that Source to a Result which could write to a string or output stream.

javax xml.transform.Transformer
