DOM Node to XML

Can some one please let me know if there is a utility/method to convert a DOM node to an XML. I have manipulated the Node object and I want to see it's contents. Can I print it in the form of an XML?
Thank you

use a transformer
this code will print the XML to standard output
TransformerFactory.newInstance().newTransformer().transform(new DOMSource(node), new StreamResult(System.out) ) ;

You can use JDOM to print the XML as it is

XMLOutputter xmlOutPutter=new XMLOutputter();
DOMBuilder domBuilder= new DOMBuilder();

It's a great pity that the JDK can offer nothing better than performing an xsl tranformation as a JDK-only way of doing one of the most fundamental things in XML programming
