'try finally' can be replaced with 'try' with resources

Reports try-finally statements that can use Java 7 Automatic Resource Management, which is less error-prone.

A quick-fix is available to convert a try-finally statement into a try-with-resources statement.


PrintStream printStream = new PrintStream(fileName); try { printStream.print(true); } finally { printStream.close(); }

A quick-fix is provided to pass the cause to a constructor:

try (PrintStream printStream = new PrintStream(fileName)) { printStream.print(true); }
