[jdom-interest] remove elements--The underlying xml doesn't change

I have system.outs everywhere, and I am using JDOM8 beta, the elements are removed from the list (I know this because I do a count before and after) but the changes are not reflecting in the original XML.
Either it's a bug or I am missing a step somewhere????

	 Here's my code to remove some elements. The elements are removed from the list (I have 17 elements to begin with and I am left with 8, which is correct). The original XML string (it's a string, not a file) is unchanged though, it still has all the 17 elements!! What do I have to do to reflect these changes in the original xml?? I tried doing a dataRs.setContent(null); dataRs.setChildren(listSections ).
	That didn't work. Any suggestions???     Thanks
	 List listSections = dataRs.getChildren("ABC");
	 Iterator iterSections = listSections.iterator();
	  elemSection =  (Element) iterSections.next();
