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 {

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
