Adding elements to a dom tree

I'm adding elements to a dom tree and i can add to the head of a node using the code:

Element firstElement = (Element) nl.item(1);
firstElement.getParentNode ().insertBefore (newNode, firstElement);

This will add the element <init-param> to the start of the servlet as follows:
<servlet>
  <init-param>
   <param-name>param1</param-name>
   <param-value>param1</param-value>
  </init-param>
  <servlet-name>servletA</servlet-name>
  <servlet-class>servlets.servletA</servlet-class>
</servlet>

This is wrong though how can i add it so that it will be the last in servlet like:

<servlet>
  <servlet-name>servletA</servlet-name>
  <servlet-class>servlets.servletA</servlet-class>
  <init-param>
   <param-name>param1</param-name>
   <param-value>param1</param-value>
  </init-param>
</servlet>
