  • Group id: com.fasterxml.woodstox
  • Artifact id: woodstox-core

Note that Maven id has changed since Woodstox 4.x.

  • XMLOutputFactory.setProperty(propertyName, value) for configuring XML writing aspects

Names of properties available, including standard Stax 1.x ones, are documented in a series of blog posts:
