I have some classes which will be used to process several XML requests,
and at times, I want to dump the contents of the request to a file. I'm
using an XMLOutputter to do this, but right now, I'm constructing a new
instance of the XMLOutputter for each request that is to be dumped. I'm
not certain this is necessary, but I err'ed on the side of caution until I
can get confirmation that it is safe to share one instance of the
The Javadocs don't specify. I looked through the source, and nothing
jumped out at me. Can someone else confirm for me if XMLOutputter's
'output' methods are both idempotent and thread-safe? I believe they are,
but I'm looking for confirmation. Obviously, changing the output settings
(indentation, etc.) would be a problem, but I use the exact same settings
every time, so those wouldn't be chanmgign in my case.
