Throwing exceptions in destructors


richard.furse@...
 

Hi there – I’m just taking a look through some of the OpenMAMA code and have a question. Is this the right place it?

 

The code I have (OpenMAMA 2.2.1.1) contains the following:

 

  MamaTransport::~MamaTransport (void)

    {

        if (mPimpl)

        {

        if ( mamaInternal_getCatchCallbackExceptions() && mPimpl->mCallback)

        {

          delete mPimpl->mCallback;

        }

            if (mPimpl->mDeleteCTransport)

            {

                mamaTry (mamaTransport_destroy (mTransport));

            }

            delete mPimpl;

            mPimpl = NULL;

        }

    }

 

Won’t this throw an exception and risk crashing if mamaTransport_destroy() fails? I can see similar code in other destructors, so I’m probably missing something.

 

Thanks,
