Can finally block be used without catch in Java?

Yes, it is not mandatory to use catch block with finally. You can have to try and finally.


Live Demo

public class Test {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      int a[] = new int[2];
      try {
      } finally {
         a[0] = 6;
         System.out.println("First element value: " + a[0]);
         System.out.println("The finally statement is executed");
