Is there any need to close the streams which are opened while executing a process?

Hi all,

I have the following snippet of code.

Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(strCommand);
BufferedReader stdInput = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(p.getInputStream()));
BufferedReader stdError = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(p.getErrorStream()));
String s = null;
while ( (s = stdInput.readLine()) !=null ){

}
while ((s = stdError.readLine()) != null){
}


Is there any need to close the streams or will they automatically close?

It's generally a good idea to close them.
