The cleanest way to end a connection is closing the 'XML document'.
Assuming xs is the object holding your XMLStream instance, simply do:


This signals to the other party that you want to end the conversation.
The peer will send you the same thing, and the connection will be
shutdown nicely. The STREAM_END_EVENT will be fired, so you can add an
observer to that.
