Hi all,

I'm looking for a Java/XML lib that can take an XML string and turn it into a nicely indented XML string, e.g.

I'll be doing a Google search naturally, but thought I might as well post here since I work here and all that

The java w3c libraries can do that job, I have used them for outputting simple snippets of HTML.
There was a good tutorial on it, one of the first results on google.


I love this place!

The Xerces library has some pretty-fying serializers in the org.apache.xml.serialize package.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools

It's not a secret anymore!
