The following example shows the usage of java.io.FileInputStream.close() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.FileInputStream;

public class FileInputStreamDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
      
      FileInputStream fis = null;
      int i=0;
      char c;
      
      try{
         // create new file input stream
         fis = new FileInputStream("C://test.txt");
         
         // read byte from file input stream
         i=fis.read();
         
         // convert integer from character
         c = (char)i;
         
         // print character
         System.out.println(c);
         
         // close file input stream
         fis.close();
         System.out.println("Close() invoked");
         
         // tries to read byte from close file input stream
         i=fis.read();
         c=(char)i;
         System.out.println(c);
         
      }catch(Exception ex){
         // if an I/O error occurs
         System.out.println("IOException: close called before read()");
      }finally{
         
         // releases all system resources from the streams
         if(fis!=null)
         {
            fis.close();
         }
      }
   }
}

Assuming we have a text file c:/test.txt, which has the following content. This file will be used as an input for our example program:

ABCDEF

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

A
IOException: close called before read()
