    You cannot partly modify a text file. Text files can either be fully written or appended. You can avoid a temp file by manipulating the file in memory. The process you would follow would be:
    1. Load the entire text file into memory
    2. Parse the file (possibly with an XML parser to make your life easier, since this seems to be XML)
    3. Delete the node you want to delete
    4. Write the entire text file back out (overwriting the input file)

    When asking for help, please follow these guidelines to receive better and more prompt help:
    1. Put your code in Java Tags. To do this, put [highlight=java] before your code and [/highlight] after your code.
    2. Give full details of errors and provide us with as much information about the situation as possible.
    3. Give us an example of what the output should look like when done correctly.
