112: Effective Java v3 – Item #9 – Prefer try with resources to try finally

In this mini-fragment episode, Donn talks about Item #9 of the Effective Java (Third Edition) book – Prefer try with resources to try finally.

Please note, this episode references the third edition of the Effective Java book that recently came out. Previously we were doing the entire series on version 2, but we are now upgrading to version 3 of the book. We will not be re-doing any of the existing lessons, but if one was inserted in the mix, then we will do that lesson.
