[jdom-interest] SAXBuilder.build() second try

If your problem is that closing the input stream is closing the socket, then
your code isn't going to fix this: BufferedReader.close() closes the
unbuffered stream, putting you right back where you started.
Also, it doesn't look like you're making use of the content-length provided.
The following has always worked for me:
byte buf = new byte[request.getContentLength()];
InputStream in = new ByteArrayInputStream(buf);
Document doc = new SAXBuilder().build(in);

I have gone through and done what I thought would be a similar wrapper to
what is described in the FAQ for sockets to get my servlet to work and I
still seem to be hanging on the build process.
Here is the code in my servlet that I try to build my document with.
BufferedReader br = request.getReader();
char xml = new char;
CharArrayReader reader = new CharArrayReader(xml);
SAXBuilder builder = new SAXBuilder(true);
Document doc = builder.build(reader);
If I view the value of the array "xml" it contains my entire document that I
am POSTing to the servlet. I am including the .java file that represents
the class I use to send data to the servlet.
I would think passing xml to a servlet would be pretty common and I'm just
missing something simple. Just for the record again, I am using jdom-b7
from cvs 3 days ago and Tomcat 3.2 as my servlet container with my
application built into it's own context.
