I think this is a bug in JavaBlock, but it could merely be a mistake in the documentation. The docs for JavaBlock state: "JavaBlock[expr] causes all new Java objects returned to Mathematica during the evaluation of expr to be released when expr finishes." However, if you evaluate the following: Scan[ReleaseJavaObject,PeekObjects]; JavaBlock[ JavaNew["javax.swing.JProgressBar"] ] PeekObjects You'll see that the list of objects returned by PeekObjects contains exactly one object - the JProgressBar created by the one call to JavaNew, in which case it's not true that "all new Java objects returned to Mathematica during the evaluation of expr [are] released when expr finishes". FWIW, I'd prefer JavaBlock behave the way it's described in the docs, since then one doesn't have to worry about the odd exception generated by having expr return a Java object instead of some other value. Cheers, Jason
