Retrieve inner XML & convert into String

I am looking to get the inner xml as
type from the XML file.
<xml version = "1.0">
I am looking to get the inner xml of <Root> node as String like -
String s = "<Child1>abc</Child1>
Is it possible to do it through JAX-B or should I get it through some XML parser. If the XML is a large file with around 300 <ChildN> nodes, would it impact the performance in case of parsing it.
Could you please help with the code snippet, if possible.
Thanks in advance.

If all you want is the text between the <root> and </root> lines that is not an XML problem at all but a text file reading one.
Open the file with a reader, read line by line, start writing content to a string buffer when you pass the opening Root tag and repeat til you hit the closing tag.
