[jdom-interest] possible thread issue question

Are there any error messages in your servlet container log? You might 
try instantiating the StringReader separately from the InputSource, and 
closing it after you have the Document, but I suspect your problem is 
unrelated to JDOM, and has more to do with your servlet environment.
