Subject [jira] Created: (IO-249) Enhance closeQuietly to indicate success
Date Wed, 29 Sep 2010 08:19:56 GMT
Enhance closeQuietly to indicate success
----------------------------------------

                 Key: IO-249
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-249
             Project: Commons IO
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Utilities
    Affects Versions: 2.0
            Reporter: Paul Benedict
            Assignee: Paul Benedict
            Priority: Minor


A convention of some programmers is to emit a log warning when a resource fails to close.
Granted, such a condition is an error, but there's no reasonable recourse to the failure.
Using IOUtils.closeQuietly() is very useful but all information about the success/failure
is hidden. Returning Throwable will give insight into the error for diagnostic purposes. This
change will be compatible with today's usage since the method currently returns void.
