Is it possible to convert an XML Node to a string?

Can this :
<root>
<child1>Me</child1>
<child2>You</child2>
</root>

be converted to:

"<root><child1>Me</child1><child2>You</child2></root>"


When I try root.getChildNodes().toString(), I do not get the result I am looking for.

You probably are looking for an XML file to a string, if I am not mistaken.
If that is the case, then you can use any Java I/O API to do this.

Converting an XML Node to a string means, converting the "value" of an XML Node to a string. BTW, an XML Node means - an XML Element, or an XML attribute or just simply the text inside an XML file. The "value" each such node depends on what type of Node it is.
