But how do I get  parent node that I can add a child to?

I have tried:

         Element root = doc.getRootElement();

         Element parentNode = xpath.applyTo(root);

         parentNode.addChild(new Element("page").addContent("test

         XMLOutputter fmt = new XMLOutputter();
         fmt.output(doc, out);

Or what is the standard way it is done without XPath?
Should I not use JDOM for this task?
