Class AutoCloseInputStream

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Closeable, AutoCloseable

    public class AutoCloseInputStream
    extends ProxyInputStream
    Proxy stream that closes and discards the underlying stream as soon as the end of input has been reached or when the stream is explicitly closed. Not even a reference to the underlying stream is kept after it has been closed, so any allocated in-memory buffers can be freed even if the client application still keeps a reference to the proxy stream.

    This class is typically used to release any resources related to an open stream as soon as possible even if the client application (by not explicitly closing the stream when no longer needed) or the underlying stream (by not releasing resources once the last byte has been read) do not do that.

    • Constructor Detail

      • AutoCloseInputStream

        public AutoCloseInputStream(InputStream in)
        Creates an automatically closing proxy for the given input stream.
        in - underlying input stream
    • Method Detail

      • close

        public void close()
                   throws IOException
        Closes the underlying input stream and replaces the reference to it with a ClosedInputStream instance.

        This method is automatically called by the read methods when the end of input has been reached.

        Note that it is safe to call this method any number of times. The original underlying input stream is closed and discarded only once when this method is first called.

        Specified by:
        close in interface  Closeable
        Specified by:
        close in interface  AutoCloseable
        close in class  ProxyInputStream
        IOException - if the underlying input stream can not be closed
      • afterRead

        protected void afterRead(int n)
                          throws IOException
        Automatically closes the stream if the end of stream was reached.
        afterRead in class  ProxyInputStream
        n - number of bytes read, or -1 if no more bytes are available
        IOException - if the stream could not be closed
      • finalize

        protected void finalize()
                         throws Throwable
        Ensures that the stream is closed before it gets garbage-collected. As mentioned in close(), this is a no-op if the stream has already been closed.
        finalize in class  Object
        Throwable - if an error occurs
