I have a xml like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<view>
<help>
<block>No.1</block>
<device>USB</device>
</help>
</view>

How could I output the xml to :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><view><help><block>No.1</block><device>USB</device></help></view>

The reason to output like this is to make the xml comparison passed.
I use org.custommonkey.xmlunit.XMLTestCase.compareXML to compare two xml string, one from Java code, the other from C# code. Now, since there are new line and whitespaces embedded in the Java generated XML, the comparison always failed. Is there any way to output the indent xml to the one string only?
