Java StAX: XMLOutputFactory

Jakob Jenkov
Last update: 2014-05-21

The class is a root component of the Java StAX API. From this class you can create both an XMLStreamWriter and an XMLEventWriter. Here are two examples:

XMLOutputFactory factory = XMLOutputFactory.newInstance();

XMLEventWriter eventWriter =
        new FileWriter("data\\test.xml"));

XMLStreamWriter streamWriter =
        new FileWriter("data\\test.xml"));

XMLOutputFactory Properties

You can set one property on the XMLOutputFactory instance using the setProperty() method. Here is an example:

factory.setProperty(XMLOutputFactory.IS_REPAIRING_NAMESPACES, true);

For a full list of properties and their meaning, see the official JavaDoc (in Java 6) for the StAX API.
