Java - Automatic conversion to Unicode and Problems with the orderof attributes

P: n/a

I am just using this Java code:

//Read it => automatically converts it to UTF-8
DocumentBuilderFactory factory = DocumentBuilderFactory
DocumentBuilder builder = factory.newDocumentBuilder();
document = builder.parse(new File(fileName));
TransformerFactory tFactory = TransformerFactory.newInstance();
Transformer transformer = tFactory.newTransformer();

//Save it
DOMSource source = new DOMSource(document);
File file = new File(fileName);
StreamResult result = new StreamResult(file);
transformer.transform(source, result);

Works fine, but the big Problem is that it orders the attributes of
elements in an alpabetic way. And I don't see a possibility right now to
avoid that.

Before: <concept name="Animal" display="always" level="1">
After: <concept display="always" level="1" name="Animal">

My aim is to:
1. Do an utomatic encoding conversion to UTF-8 of an xml document
2. change some attributes in the root element (Check for a certain
schema location etc...) of this xml document

Do you have any practical solutions for that that preserve the order of
attributes within elements (using sax...)?

Thanks a lot,
