All depends on what? Why? when? where? You posted this question on the Safety Forum. Did you mean to post your question on the Electrical Forum?

Almost always and probably should post in electrical.

If the wire is long enough, you don't need a junction box. You usually need a box if you are putting in an outlet or switch.

If you have to ask you probably shouldn't be messing with electricity.

Is it electricity? if 2 or more cables need to be joined together, it must be housed in a covered junction box. if you have an oulet, switch, light fixture....etc. the wire connections must be housed in a covered junction box. If the end of one cable isnt being used it must be housed in a covered junction box.
