What is the best way for an SWT application to clean up resources before application exit? I see two options:

1) Add a DisposeListener to main window (or better, to the Display). Will it get run if an uncaught exception happens?

2) Use a shutdown hook. Any problems to be aware of there which aren't mentioned in Design of the Shutdown Hooks API?
