How To View The Contents Of A Node

I have retrieved a node using Oracle Business Components for Java's writeXML method, and I'd like to view its contents.

I have tried to append it to a document (so that I can use xmlOutput.output(document, System.out) to view the node) using appendChild(node), but I get this error:

org.apache.crimson.tree.DomEx: WRONG_DOCUMENT_ERR: That node doesn't belong in this document.

I have also tried to import the node using importNode(node, boolean) but I get this error:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Node is not a rg.apache.crimson.tree implementation.

Lastly, I have tried this:

javax.xml.transform.dom.DOMSource domSource = new javax.xml.transform.dom.DOMSource(xmlNode);
javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory txnfac = javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory.newInstance();
File xslfile = new File("C:\\xml\\testoutput.xsl");
StreamSource xslsource = new StreamSource(xslfile);
javax.xml.transform.Transformer txn = txnfac.newTransformer(xslsource);
txn.transform(domSource, new StreamResult(new FileOutputStream("C:\\xml\\result.xml")));

but then I get this error:

java.lang.AbstractMethodError
void org.apache.xalan.transformer.TransformerImpl.transform(javax.xml.transform.Source, javax.xml.transform.Result)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can't use neither appendChild nor importNode.

Try
  javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory txnfac = javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory.newInstance();
  javax.xml.transform.Transformer txn = txnfac.newTransformer();
  txn.transform(new javax.xml.transform.dom.DOMSource(yourSourceNode), new javax.xml.transform.dom.DOMResult(yourParentNode));

{ and same }
javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory.newInstance().newInstance().transform(new javax.xml.transform.dom.DOMSource(yourSourceNode), new javax.xml.transform.dom.DOMResult(yourParentNode));

I tried the code you posted, but there's still an Abstract Method Error.  Anyway, I found a new API that has a method that converts a node directly into a String.  But thanks for your response!  =)
