final Its a constant declaration.
finally It handles exception. It is an optional block to write at the end of your exception handling block. It is usually used to close files, close database connections and statements. Also release all other resources in this block.
finalize This method is called by the garbage collector. Garbage collector always called this method before it performs garbage collection on that object. It should not be used to release non memory resources such as file handlers, database connections etc. Because you do not know when this garbage collector will start it execution and collect all those resources. Garbage collection is a low priority thread.
