Re: Cannot close an XML file used for parsing

Hi Sheila,
Unfortunately, this suggestion hasn't fixed the problem still.
Thanks for the idea anyway,

Jack – did you try fosOutHtml.getFD().sync() after the flush?

Hi Robert,


Thanks for responding to this post.


I have added your suggestion but the issue still persist. Nevertheless, I do believe that this is caused by the new XML file not having been closed properly.


There is no problem with http://sourceforge.net/projects/light-html2xml method which has worked in the past.


Any more suggestion to try out?

close the stream or reader in a finally block to avoid leaving it open 
if an error occurs.

}finally {
