    {
      

                DocumentBuilder db;
                  try {
                        db = dbf.newDocumentBuilder();
                      Document doc = db.parse(new File("C:\\test.xml"));
                      NodeList nodelist = doc.getElementsByTagName("LEVEL!");
                    
                    
                      NamedNodeMap nodeMap = nodelist.item(0).getAttributes();
                      Node testnode= nodeMap.item(0);
                      testnode.setNodeValue("newValue");

Check this sample:

http://javaalmanac.com/egs/javax.xml.transform/WriteDom.html

And Your code would look like:

import java.io.*;
import org.w3c.dom.*;
import org.xml.sax.*;
import javax.xml.parsers.*;
import javax.xml.transform.*;
import javax.xml.transform.dom.*;
import javax.xml.transform.stream.*;

public class XMLSaving {
  public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception {
    DocumentBuilder db = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance().newDocumentBuilder();
    Document doc = db.parse(new File("C:\\test.xml"));
    NodeList nodelist = doc.getElementsByTagName("LEVEL!");
    NamedNodeMap nodeMap = nodelist.item(0).getAttributes();
    Node testnode= nodeMap.item(0);
    testnode.setNodeValue("newValue");
    Source source = new DOMSource(doc);
    File file = new File("C:\\out.xml");
    Result result = new StreamResult(file);
    Transformer xformer = TransformerFactory.newInstance().newTransformer();
    xformer.transform(source, result);
  }
}

for your question i had some thoughts only [assuming Java] along the lines of using the filewriter

http://ws.apache.org/jaxme/release-0.3/manual/ch01s02.html

    FileWriter fw = new FileWriter("Address.xml");
    fw.??(doc);
    fw.close();
