I am desperately looking for a soultion on "how to suppress empty tags" 
while creating an XML via JDOM. For the time being I am checking for 
each built element if its content is null and if not then build element. 
But it would be much more "elegant" if i would have a general method for 
this perhaps referring to the XMLOutputter.

Do you have an idea how i could suppress empty tags easier as the way I 
do it right now? How can I e.g. remove children tags in dependance on 
their content resp. "no content"?
