This week's book giveaways are in the Refactoring and Agile forums. We're giving away four copies each of Re-engineering Legacy Software and Docker in Action and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
If an error is caught, is the finally method guaranteed to be called or is this only true with exceptions? Also, would an error cause a Thread to stop running? I'm mainly referring to java.lang.OutofMemoryError. Thanks, Drew

In JLS �14.19.2 they use 'completes abruptly' instead of the terms 'error' and 'exception', which leads me to believe that, yes, the finally block will be executed on any 'interuption' in its companion try block.
