It should be closed by DownloadStream.writeResponse if I'm not mistaken.

It is simple to test if close is called properly though.

StreamResource pdfResource = new StreamResource(
  () -> new ByteArrayInputStream(pdfContent) {
       public void close() throws IOException {
            LOGGER.fine("StreamResource closing");

But as a side note, ByteArrayInputStream.close does nothing, and the ByteArrayInputStream does not hold onto any system resources(other than the original byte[]) so the garbage collector should be able to remove if safely once it is dereferenced.
