'RecordStore' opened but not safely closed

Reports Java ME javax.microedition.rms.RecordStore resources that are not opened in front of a try block and closed in the corresponding finally block.

Such resources may be inadvertently leaked if an exception is thrown before the resource is closed.

This inspection is intended for Java ME and other highly resource constrained environments. Applying the results of this inspection without consideration might have negative effects on code clarity and design.


void foo1() throws RecordStoreException { RecordStore rs = RecordStore.openRecordStore("bar", true); // warning } void foo2() throws RecordStoreException { RecordStore rs = RecordStore.openRecordStore("bar", true); // no warning try { /* ... */ } finally { rs.closeRecordStore(); } }

Locating this inspection


Can be used to locate inspection in e.g. Qodana configuration files, where you can quickly enable or disable it, or adjust its settings.

Via Settings dialog

Path to the inspection settings via IntelliJ Platform IDE Settings dialog, when you need to adjust inspection settings directly from your IDE.
