Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-249) Enhance closeQuietly to indicate success
Date Sat, 02 Oct 2010 18:35:32 GMT


Paul Benedict commented on IO-249:

On second thought, I think the handler idea is great. If possible, I would like to write the
implementation for 2.0. Since it is a new method, it won't affect compatiblity.

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.
