// create a new content:
CmsObject cms; // get one or create one with username/password
CmsXmlContentDefinition contentDef = CmsXmlContentDefinition.unmarshal(cms, pathToXsdFile);
CmsXmlContent content = CmsXmlContentFactory.createDocument(cms, locale, "UTF-8", contentDef);

// or read an existing one:
CmsResource resource = cms.readResource(pathToResource);
CmsFile file = CmsFile.upgrade(resource, cms);

// change content:
content = CmsXmlContentFactory.unmarshal(cms, file);
content.getValue("name", locale).setStringValue(cms, "hans");

// write the content, or otherwise the changes are lost!:
