Java Language Carefully Closing a Scanner


Example

it can happen that you use a scanner with the System.in as parameter for the constructor, then you need to be aware that closing the scanner will close the InputStream too giving as next that every try to read the input on that (Or any other scanner object) will throw an java.util.NoSuchElementException or an java.lang.IllegalStateException

example:

    Scanner sc1 = new Scanner(System.in);
    Scanner sc2 = new Scanner(System.in);
    int x1 = sc1.nextInt();
    sc1.close();
    // java.util.NoSuchElementException
    int x2 = sc2.nextInt();
    // java.lang.IllegalStateException
    x2 = sc1.nextInt();
