Try

public String domToString(Document doc) {
      try {
            StringWriter sw = new StringWriter();
            OutputFormat output = new OutputFormat("text", "ISO-8859-1", true);
            output.setPreserveSpace(true);
            XMLSerializer serial = new XMLSerializer(sw, output);
            serial.serialize(doc);
            return sw.toString();
      }
      catch (IOException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
            return null;
      }
}

Ok
I get the answer

import java.io.*;
import javax.xml.transform.*;
import javax.xml.transform.dom.*;
import javax.xml.transform.stream.*;

//method to convert Document to String
public String getStringFromDocument(Document doc)
{
    try
    {
       DOMSource domSource = new DOMSource(doc);
       StringWriter writer = new StringWriter();
       StreamResult result = new StreamResult(writer);
       TransformerFactory tf = TransformerFactory.newInstance();
       Transformer transformer = tf.newTransformer();
       transformer.transform(domSource, result);
       return writer.toString();
    }
    catch(TransformerException ex)
    {
       ex.printStackTrace();
       return null;
    }
}
