Actually, Where the problem(XML or java program)?
If the problem in handling this string in java use,
String str = "\"(\" ,\")\"";

No. Parentheses are not special characters in any way in XML. So you should investigate your problem again to find out what it really is.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
