'throw' inside 'finally' block

Reports throw statements inside finally blocks.

While occasionally intended, such throw statements may conceal exceptions thrown from try-catch and thus tremendously complicate the debugging process.

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.

Settings or Preferences | Editor | Inspections | Java | Error handling
