In this example we will see how we can use the DOM parser to generate an XML document using the Java Objects. We will be using the javax.xml.transform.dom.DOMSource class for this. DOM provides all the classes necessary to do this.

Steps Involved

  1. Create a Document withDocumentBuilder class,
  2. Define all the XML content – node (document node, root node, text node, … ), attribute  etc with the Element class.
  3. Use Transformer ( javax.xml.transform.Transformer )class to output the XML content to stream output. This output can be console or a File depending on the needs


We intend to create the following XML file using the DOM
