I am parsing an XML file against a XSD with Apache XERCES parser. I am using a FileReader object to pass it to the PARSE method of XERCES parser and after it finishes parsing, it's closing the STREAM of FILEREADER.
But, I would not like to close the STREAM as I would use the same READER further in the code.
