Class AutoCloseInputStream

All Implemented Interfaces:
Closeable, AutoCloseable

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.

To build an instance, use AutoCloseInputStream.Builder.
