As stated in the question, is it necessary to close a Netty
ChunkedInput after sending its data through
ChannelHandlerContext.writeAndFlush()? I know this operation is asynchronous so probably I am not supposed to close it immediately after calling
writeAndFlush(), therefore do I need to add a
FutureListener to close it?
In the official File server example, I fuond that the the
close() function of the
ChunkedInput is not called:
sendFileFuture = ctx.writeAndFlush(new HttpChunkedInput(new ChunkedFile(raf, 0, fileLength, 8192)), ctx.newProgressivePromise());
Does it mean that the
ChunkedInput is closed automatically when all the data is read, or does the channel actually help me close it?
