The following example shows the usage of java.util.Properties.storeToXML() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.FileOutputStream;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.util.*;

public class PropertiesDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {
      Properties prop = new Properties();

      // add some properties
      prop.put("Height", "200");
      prop.put("Width", "15");

      try {

         // create a output and input as a xml file
         FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream("properties.xml");
         FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream("properties.xml");

         // store the properties in the specific xml
         prop.storeToXML(fos, "Properties Example");

         // print the xml
         while (fis.available() > 0) {
            System.out.print("" + (char) fis.read());
         }

      } catch (IOException ex) {
         ex.printStackTrace();
      }

   }
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE properties SYSTEM "http://java.sun.com/dtd/properties.dtd">
<properties>
<comment>Properties Example</comment>
<entry key="Width">15</entry>
<entry key="Height">200</entry>
</properties>
