What I have in mind is something like this:

    // Create employees database
    Element employeesRoot = new Element("employees");
    Document employess = new Document(employeesRoot);

    // Create new employee
    Element employee = new Element("employee");
    employee.addAttribute("fistname", "John");
    employee.addAttribute("lastname", "Smith");
    employee.addAttribute("age", "31");
    // Note: all of the above could be sub-elements instead of attributes

    // Add employee to employees database

You wouldn't need to use any Builder or Outputter. As soon as an element is added
to a document it is automatically stored into the database.
