Given the following code :
import java.io.*;
import java.net.*;

public class Base{

private void test() {

try {
String a = null;
String b = "b";
// Complex processing

if(a==null)
throw new MalformedURLException("test");
if(b ==null)
throw new EOFException("test");
// Complex processing

System.out.println("End of try block");

}
catch (MalformedURLException e) {
System.out.println("Caught MalformedURLException");
return;
}
catch (EOFException e) {
System.out.println("Caught EOFException");
return;
}
finally {
System.out.println("End finally");
}
System.out.println("End processing");
}

static public void main(String[] a) {
new Base().test();
}

}
Could somebody explain why "End Processing" is not printed out?
Thanks.

Since you have return statement in your catch block, it will print "Caught MalformedURLException", then it will execute finally block and then return. It won't execute any code after finally.

Thanks Seema, I somehow overlooked the 'return'. The eyes have to be really open!
