import java.io.*;


try {
  BufferedOutputStream bos = new BufferedOutputStream(new FileOutputStream(new File("C:\\your\\path")));

  bos.write(yourString.getBytes());
  bos.flush();
  bos.close();
}
catch (IOException ioe) {
  System.out.println(ioe.toString());
}

Try something like:



String s = "<a><b>test<b></a>";

..........


public static void writeXmlFile(String xmlString, String filename) {
        try {
            // Prepare the xml for writing
            Source source = new StreamSource(new StringReader(xmlString));
   
            // Prepare the output file
            File file = new File(filename);
            Result result = new StreamResult(file);
   
            // Write the DOM document to the file
            Transformer xformer = TransformerFactory.newInstance().newTransformer();
            xformer.transform(source, result);
        } catch (TransformerConfigurationException e) {
        } catch (TransformerException e) {
        }
    }

You can't use OutputStreams or even Writers as if the input were to contain certain characters, they would not get handled correctly for the purposes of xml.

Testsubbu, as i've explained that answer is not correct. It may well work in the case that you've posted, but if you used it to write the following:

String s = "<a><b>1 & 1 == true<b></a>";

The only time you'll find out it doesn't work is when you try to read the resulting file with any xml classes
