Following is an explanation from Marcus Green exam#3
(Question 5)

You can create a file in the underlying operating system by passing an instance of a file to a stream such as FileOutputStream. The file will be created when you call the close method of the stream.

I am not clear about the last line regarding using the close().
The file is created even without using it.

This is what the API doc has to say:
close(): Closes this file output stream and releases any system resources associated with this stream.
I think the explanation should have been the file will be released when the close() method is called..
Correct me if I am wrong.
