Hi all, In my application, I am using a font resource(TTF file), which i load using
InputStream in = getClass().getResourceAsStream("ARIALUNI.TTF"); Font font = Font.createFont(Font.TRUE_TYPE,in);
Every time, I use this resource, a temp file named "+~JFxxxx.tmp" is created in the TEMP directory. This happens even when the app is deployed as a jar. Can anyone let me know, if this can be avoided or how to remove these temp files when the program terminates.
As the javadoc states for createFont method, this method does not close the inputStream. If you have a close() method that is called when you close your application, you coud close the stream and the temp file should disappear.

Thanks for the reply. I have already closed the stream using the close method, but according to the javadoc it(InputStream's close()) has no implementation. Is there any other way for this. Thanks again.

did you try to cast your InputStream in as FileInputStream before calling the close method ?
If the InputStream is a FileInputStream, calling close() will already do FileInputStream.close(). If the InputStream is not a FileInputStream, casting will fail; you can't somehow turn it into a FileInputStream by casting.
