From this code example from the book "Grails in Action", how would i print the actual formatted XML?  Do I use file.txt?
import groovy.xml.MarkupBuilder
import groovy.util.XmlSlurper

def file = new File ("test.xml")
def objs = [
[quantity:10, name:"Orange",type:"Fruit"],
[quantity:6, name:"Apple",type:"Fruit"],
[quantity:2, name:"Chair",type:"Furniture"]]
def b = new MarkupBuilder(new FileWriter(file))
b.root{
  objs.each{o ->
    item(qty:o.quantity) {
      name(o.name)
      type(o.type)
      }
      }
      }
 def xml = new XmlSlurper().parse(file)
 assert xml.item.size()==3
 assert xml.item[0].name =="Orange"
 assert xml.item[0].@qty == "10"
 println "Fruits:${xml.item.findAll{it.type=='Fruit'}*.name}"
 println "Total:${xml.item.@qty.list().sum{it.toInteger()}}"

You can print the xml from the XmlSlurper like this

println XmlUtil.serialize(xml)

If you want to print directly from the MarkupBuilder then you need to pass StringWriter to the constructor.
