com.sun.naming.internal.ResourceManager.getApplicationResources() does not close the input streams it gets from helper.getResources() and helper.getJavaHomeLibStream().

While they will eventually be garbage collected and finalised, not calling close() means that the file descriptors are open longer than they need to, potentially causing a descriptor limit to be reached.

It just one fix about closing file stream in finally statement. Developer does not provide new test or lable about "noreg-xx". SQE has reviewed the code and it makes sense. Dev should provide "noreg-trivial" for it but no response yet. Close it as verified
