first, let's format this correctly: exactly do you think you can reach line 9? As soon as you throw the exception on line 8, you jump to the finally block on line 11. So there is no possible way for this line to execute. The compiler can tell, and assumes that you made a mistake somewhere.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
I agree. Here's the link:
