public void release()
Releases the allocated resource. This method should not be called except
by the caller who allocated the resource at the very top of the call
stack. This allows, typically, a
Closeable resource to be not
unintentionally released owing to the calling of the
Closeable.close() methods by implementation deep down in the call
For example, the creation of a
ResettableInputStream would entail
physically opening a file. If the opened file is meant to be closed only
(in a finally block) by the very same code block that created it, then it
is necessary that the release method must not be called while the
execution is made in other stack frames.
In such case, as other stack frames may inadvertently or indirectly call
the close method of the stream, the creator of the stream would need to
explicitly disable the accidental closing via
ResettableInputStream#disableClose(), so that the release method
becomes the only way to truly close the opened file.
