Convert DOM Document back to XML file

I have started to look into java API's for XML parsing.
My current need in my project is to take XML file, construct a JTree out of it, display it , allow users to manupulate the JTree and finally manipulate the XML file accordingly.
DOM/JDOM API seems to be the best fit for me.
I understand that we can use parse method to obtain a Document object.
But I did not find any API like XMLWriter which will convert the Document back to XML file. (I'm not talking about output to the screen)
I know that by using XMLOutputter with JDOM package or by creating our own XMLOutput class we can write to the modified Document object to the same file, but I want a more obvious solution like a parse call, which takes a Document object as input and gives a XML file.
Could you please help me???
