FWIW, you could also plug-in a different outputter.

The XMLWriter in jdom's samples uses decimal notation.  So does
dom4j's XMLWriter.  Once you have a document, either of these can be
plugged into jdom's SAXOutputter.

For my simple test below, I plug dom4j's XMLWriter directly into
SAXBuilder, using the XMLFilter hook.  In this way, SAXBuilder drives
the parser and sends SAX events to the XMLWriter for output.

import org.jdom.Document;
import org.jdom.input.SAXBuilder;
import org.dom4j.io.XMLWriter;

public class Test {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
        SAXBuilder builder = new SAXBuilder();
        XMLWriter writer = new XMLWriter();
        java.io.InputStream in = Test.class.getResourceAsStream("test.xml");
        Document doc = builder.build(in);

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<eConnect xmlns:dt="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:datatypes">
  <!-- <snip/> -->
    <ADDRESS1>Villa Espa&#241;a Zaragoza</ADDRESS1>
  <!-- <snip/> -->

Note: If you don't set maximum allowed character, you'll get an "enya"
instead of &#241;
