[Android] The Java.exe process that executed Gradle is not Terminated when a Build in Batch mode is completed




Priority: 2Necessary for shipping a final release


Severity: 2Core functionality majorly impacted

To reproduce:

1. Download attached project ""
2. Open Command Prompt
3. Write this line "\path\to\Unity.exe" -batchMode -projectPath "\path\to\this\project" -quit -executeMethod Builder.Build -buildTarget Android and execute it
4. Open Task Manager, find there Windows Command Processor and expand it
5. Wait until Build is complete
6. Observe that after a build is complete, the Java.exe process that executed Gradle remains running

- This process is holding on to several file handles (including the Unity log file) and consumes a lot of memory
- If you try to Build project in Unity Editor, there will also be the Java.exe process that executed Gradle running, but after you close Unity Editor, it will be terminated
