Hi, In K&B, on page no.348 it is mentioned that, "Later we'll look at the few scenarios in which finally might not run or complete". But after reading the whole topic of exception I couldn't find any examples. Does anybody know about any scenarios where finally clause might not run or complete? Or if it is in the book can anybody please tell at which place they are mentioned.
a finally block will fail to run only in extreme cases such as 1) your JVM crashes 2) your system crashes 3) you get some sort of JVM error you got what i want to say right so it takes a catastrophic situation for a finally block not to run and also this is mentioned in K&B i have read it just dont remember the page
