There's a lot of different possibilities, depending on the details of your requirements. But I would strongly suggest that you create this XML file using software which is designed to create XML files. That way you will be guaranteed that the file is well-formed XML and you won't have to check that after the fact.

It's also easy to check that a given XML file is correct if you have an XSD of it, which you can write yourself or possibly generate from an annotated class.

It's true, "valid" and "well-formed" are not the same thing in the XML world.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
