comment Did the developers of Java consciously abandon RAII?
@Giorgio: The point of the article is, Java seems to have missed the boat on a number of issues, some of which relate directly to RAII. Regarding C++ and its impact on Java, Eckels notes: "You must keep in mind the primary design decision upon which everything in C++ hung: compatibility with C. This was a huge constraint, and has always been C++'s greatest strength... and its bane. It also fooled the Java designers who didn't understand C++ well enough." The design of C++ influenced Java directly, while C# had the opportunity to learn from both. (Whether it did so is another question.)
