Xerces-J closes the input stream.

It's fairly typical for XML parsers to close the input stream when they
detect EOF.  Don't ask me why..

The faq entry about reading from a socket suggests some workarounds.

One suggestion is to protect the input stream from the parser, for example:

  class NoCloseInputStream extends FilterInputStream {
    public NoCloseInputStream(InputStream in) {
    public void close() { /* nop */ }

  new SAXBuilder().build( new NoCloseInputStream(in) );
