Avoid the XML Encoding Trap

It's not a good idea to read an XML file and store it in a String because it wastes memory. XML specifies its encoding in the XML header, so when you read a file you need to know the encoding beforehand. All XML parsers accept an InputStream as a parsing source and they correctly figure out the encoding themselves.

String xml = fileUtils.readTextFile("MyXMLfile.xml");
