I'm trying to read in an xml file, then write it back out again, but I'm getting a Java error:

Error casting an object of type coldfusion.xml.XmlNodeList to an incompatible type. This usually indicates a programming error in Java, although it could also mean you have tried to use a foreign object in a different way than it was designed. coldfusion.xml.XmlNodeList  

This code:

<cfset fileName="/export/local/www.projects/html/students/MScIT/campbelj/forum/test/test.xml">


<cfset mydoc = XmlParse(myFile)>

<cffile action="Write"

on this xml file:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<nodes name="what">
     <node name="who"></node>
     <node name="where"></node>

(The only white spaces are those added by a previous cffile write.)

And I'm getting this error:

The Error Occurred in /export/local/www.proj/html/students/MScIT/campbelj/forum/test/xml2.cfm: line 16
14 :      file="/export/local/www.projects/html/students/MScIT/campbelj/forum/test/test.xml"
15 :      output="#mydoc#"
16 : >


Any ideas?
