Hi, I have the following code:

The exception is thrown, and still, the EDT goes on (the frame is 'realised' so a thread for it is created, the application doesn't finish. It just lingers on as a process that has to be killed. How do you go about it? Is there any configuration option to say that any exception finishes the thread?

I agree. Here's the link:
