it indented to a second file?

Assume I have a XML docuemnt in file mydoc123.xml
The XML doc is textually formatted as one long line/string without line breaks.
Now I want to read this XML doc file into Java, then reformat it so
that the hierarchy levels are indented in a human radble format "as usual".
Finally the result should be written to another text file result.xml
How can I do this most easily (preferable without third party libraries but
only J2SE built-in functions)?
Newer versions of W3C DOM supports writing of XML files.
So try something like:
DocumentBuilderFactory dbf = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
DocumentBuilder db = dbf.newDocumentBuilder();
Document doc = db.parse(oldfnm);
DOMImplementation impl =
DOMImplementationLS feature =
LSSerializer ser = feature.createLSSerializer();
LSOutput output = feature.createLSOutput();
