I am trying to set the indenting of an xml doc so it is easily readable but it is not working?

I would like to stick with the javax.xml.transform classes...

Here is the code I am using


      private void indentXML(Document doc){

            try{
                  Transformer trans = TransformerFactory.newInstance().newTransformer();
                  trans.setOutputProperty(OutputKeys.INDENT, "yes");
                  trans.transform(new DOMSource(doc), new StreamResult(System.out));

            }catch(Exception e){}
      }

(1)set the indent-number into the transformerfactory
TransformerFactory tf = new TransformerFactory.newInstance();
tf.setAttribute("indent-number", new Integer(2));
(2)enable the indent in the transformer
Transformer t = tf.newTransformer();
t.setOutputProperty(OutputKeys.INDENT, "yes");
(3)wrap the otuputstream with a writer (or bufferedwriter)
t.transform(new DOMSource(doc),
new StreamResult(new OutputStreamWriter(out, "utf-8"));
