ByteArrayOutputStream os = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
xmlOutputter.output(document, os);
String theOutput = os.toString();

Subject: [jdom-interest] Getting String from a Document

Hi all,

I am using beta 4 to process and create XML files. My problem is that I am
creating a stand alone class that will create XML from some parameters and
I want the member functions to return a String object containing the XML,
as the class doesn´t know whether the XML will be written to file or
whatever. I am unable to find a way to to this, as the XMLOutputter only
uses OutputStreams..

does anyone know how this can be done ?
