[jdom-interest] Interesting problem

I've written a class that extends Document.  In that class, I have a
function called "createXMLFile", which basically takes a path, creates an
XML file from the extended document.  However, the main document has 2 root
So, my code looks something like this:
public class ProductXMLDocument extends Document {
  public ProductXMLDocument() {
    super (new Element("root"));
    elemCatalog = new Element("catalog");
  public void createXMLFile(String _filePath) throws JDOMException,
IOException {
    FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(new File(_filePath,
    XMLOutputter xmlOut = new XMLOutputter();
    xmlOut.output(this, fos);
    fos.close(); // Is this necessary?
When I look at the file, It adds the catalog node, then all of the products,
then another catalog node, then all of the products again.  Has anyone seen
this before?  I've tried taking the createXMLFile code out of the
ProductXMLDocument and put it in the code that calls it, but it yields the
same results.
