Hi,

finally will always be executed only exception is that when any of the catch blocks or try block calls system.exit() but consider this code.

public class testfinally{

void test(int i){

if ( i == 1)
return; // replace this with throw new RuntimeException();

try{
System.out.println("1");
}catch(Exception e){e.printStackTrace();}
finally{System.out.println("in finally");}

}

public static void main(String[] args){

new testfianlly().test(1);
}

}

even in this case when the if condition is satisfied it simply returns or throw some exception in any of this cases to finally block doesnt execute what is the reason for finally block not being executed.

Thanks

the throw new RuntimeException() is outside of the try block.

Finally will always execute even if an exception is thrown in the try block. In this case exception is outside. So programs stops before it reaches try.

so it means to say that finally is guranteed to execute only when the control is in the context of try,catch if the control is much before then finally will not execute.

Thanks
