I am trying to parse an xml document.  I have attached the code as well as the console containing the exception...

protected Node parse (InputSource xml) throws ParserConfigurationException, SAXException, IOException {
		DocumentBuilder b = bfac.newDocumentBuilder();
		b.setErrorHandler(new SimpleSaxErrorHandler(LOG) {
			public void warning(SAXParseException ex) throws SAXException {
				if (!ex.getMessage().startsWith("Declared encoding"))
		return b.parse(xml);

Open in new window

Watch Question

The exception indicates that the passed InputSource has been closed.
Check the code that calls your parse method.
