Save an XML DOM Object to a File (Smart)


Saving an XML DOM object is also known as serializing the DOM. It involves a call to the save method on the DOM object. To demonstrate this, we will continue from the previous exercise, and save the DOM object that was loaded from stocks.xml to a different file, myStocks.xml.

This project uses the following files.
