Hello,
I have this line of code: closingRootElement =("</"+rootElement.substring(1,rootElement.length())+">");
and when I print it; pw.print(closingRootElement);
pw is; PrintWriter pw = new PrintWriter(new FileWriter(tempFile));

What I get is:</CorrelationEngineParameters >   There is a space between the s and >, i.e., "s >".
I can not figure out from where this space is coming from.
Any thoughts, suggestions?

How is it parsing the rootElement string in the first place?

To fix the problem, you could change code to add trim() function; however, think you want to know what caused it.
closingRootElement =("</"+rootElement.substring(1,rootElement.length()).trim()+">");

Dame your good!  Had to add a -1 to the parser;
rootElement = (line.trim().substring(line.trim().indexOf('<'), (line.trim().indexOf("xmlns=")-1)));

You got it.  Since there is a space before the xmlns attribute in the tag. :)

Glad to help.
