Im trying to get my head around try / catch / finally blocks. I want to be able to use finally to close an input stream.. but I can't figure out the code i need to use. Heres what I have. How do I organise my code to get it right?



At compile time I get cannot find symbol: variale fr, I guess this means that I cannot access the fis object from the finally statement, but I don't know how to organise the code so that I can.

You need to declare fis outside the block, so it can be accessed in both the try and finally blocks. Like this:
