Use LSOutput and LSSerializer to Serialize a DOM Tree

This tip shows you how to use the LSOutput/LSSerializer interfaces (from the DOM Load and Save API) for serialize a DOM tree. Extract the DOM tree with the following basic steps:

//AirWings_xml.xml - the XML document from this example//LSOutput_1.xml - the result of serializationimport javax.xml.parsers.*;import org.w3c.dom.*;import java.io.*;import org.w3c.dom.ls.*;class DOM{  DocumentBuilderFactory DBF=null;  DocumentBuilder DB=null;  Document D=null;  DOMImplementationLS DOMiLS=null;  FileOutputStream FOS=null;  public DOM(){}   public void StartSerialization(String XMLdoc)     {     try{        //create a DocumentBuilderFactory object        DBF=DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();               //create a DocumentBuilder object        DB=DBF.newDocumentBuilder();               //get the DOM tree        D=DB.parse(new File(XMLdoc));                      }catch(javax.xml.parsers.ParserConfigurationException e)           {System.out.println(e.getMessage());        }catch(org.xml.sax.SAXException e)           {System.out.println(e.getMessage());        }catch(java.io.IOException e)           {System.out.println(e.getMessage());}               //testing the support for DOM Load and Save        if((D.getFeature("Core","3.0")!=null)&&             (D.getFeature("LS","3.0")!=null))           {                  DOMiLS=(DOMImplementationLS)(D.getImplementation()).                    getFeature("LS","3.0");           System.out.println("[Using DOM Load and Save]");           }else             {             System.out.println("[DOM Load and Save unsupported]");                         System.exit(0);             }         //get a LSOutput object        LSOutput LSO=DOMiLS.createLSOutput();            //setting the location for storing the result of serialization     try{        FOS=new FileOutputStream(                 "C://Data_Local//xml//docs//LS_output_1.xml");        LSO.setByteStream((OutputStream)FOS);                  }catch(java.io.FileNotFoundException e)          {System.err.println(e.getMessage());}            //get a LSSerializer object        LSSerializer LSS=DOMiLS.createLSSerializer();            //do the serialization        boolean ser=LSS.write(D,LSO);            //publish the result        if(ser)           System.out.println("[Serialization done!]");             else System.out.println("[Serialization failed!]");     try{        FOS.close();        }catch(java.io.IOException e)          {System.out.println(e.getMessage());}     } }public class serializationExample{ public static void main(String[] args)  {  DOM t=new DOM();    t.StartSerialization("C://Data_Local//xml//docs//AirWings_xml.xml");  }}
