XMLOutputFactory Class

New instances of the abstract class XMLOutputFactory are created by calling the newInstance method on the class. The static method XMLOutputFactory.newInstance is then used to create a new factory instance. The algorithm used to obtain the instance is the same as for XMLInputFactory but references the system property.

XMLOutputFactory supports only one property, This property is required, and its purpose is to create default prefixes and associate them with Namespace URIs. See the StAX specification for more information.
