I'm trying to do this using sax. Are there any examples how to do this?
Is using sax ok for this task?

SAX or StAX seems as the most obvious choices given the context.

Any textbook SAX example should lead you to working code.

I can post some code, but I doubt that it will show anything
various books and tutorials does not.

I tried to accumulate the whole xml(<doc>...</doc>) as string using sax,
but in this case all special characters are processed by parser
and are just characters and not "predefined entities" like &quot;

Any correct XML parser should convert the XML &quot; to a " in
a Java String.

Any correct XML formatter/serializer should convert it back again
