When Ctrl-c causes an application to be interrupted does the finalize method for all objects get called? If not is there any way of executing something when ctrl-c interrupts an application?

Java doesn't guarantee that finalizers are run, ever -- not on normal termination, let alone abnormal termination. Don't write code that requires finalize() to run for correctness.

finalize() is for Java Garbage Collection.
As Java does not guarantee Garbage Collection, don't not rely on Finalize method.
