Hello I have a code as follows
1. Not working Code :

as you can see fore the the code will not compile

2. Working Code :

As you can see the difference in both the snippets that the placement of the psw object.
So want to know that when I created the PrintWriter object in the try block it's scope got limited it try block only.

Does this mean that object / variables defined in try block have their scope limit to that try block ?

Keep Moving Forward

Yes. As with every other block. Why would try be different?
