Parsing xml from a URL

How do I parse an XML file on a remote server in JSP? When I make a pure java stand alone app using JAXP, I am able to do something like

Document doc = docBuilder.parse("http://x.y.com/some.xml");

and it works. I do the same in JSP it fails.

Why would you do this in a JSP rather than in its controller servlet?
