I can easily generate XML with groovy and output it to the groovy console.

def writer = new StringWriter()
def xml = new MarkupBuilder(writer)
xml.gpx() { wpt(lat:’22.22222’, lon:’77.77777’) }
println writer.toString()

I also know how to create a new file.

def target ="C:/gps.xml"
File file= new File(target)

But how do I write the XML to a new file called gps.xml..?

Thanks in advanced.

There has to be an easier way (but I can't find the example), but this should work:

Your file object has both write() and append() methods that accept a string. write() replaces the file contents while append() just adds to it.
