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 {

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
