Subject [jira] [Commented] (GROOVY-8085) Exception in "finally" not caught by outer "try"
Date Mon, 27 Feb 2017 23:54:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GROOVY-8085?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15886788#comment-15886788

Daniel Sun commented on GROOVY-8085:
------------------------------------

Beside John's suggestion, I provide you another:

{code}
try {
   def returnValue
   try {
      ...
      returnValue = ... 
   } finally {
      ... // some exception(e.g. exceptionX) is thrown
   }

   return returnValue;
} catch (Throwable t) { // the exceptionX can be caught
      ... 
}
{code}

>             Project: Groovy
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Compiler
>    Affects Versions: 2.4.8
>         Environment: linux
>            Reporter: Craig Silverstein
>            Assignee: Daniel Sun
>            Priority: Critical
>             Fix For: 2.4.10

> I would expect the following code to print `caughtt`:
> ```
> groovy -e 'try { try { true; } finally { 1 / 0 } } catch (e) { println "caughtt" }'
> ```
> But instead, it prints:
> ```
> Caught: java.lang.ArithmeticException: Division by zero
> java.lang.ArithmeticException: Division by zero
>         at script_from_command_line.run(script_from_command_line:1)
> ```
> Why is the exception, thrown by the `finally`, not being caught by the outer try/catch?
