After a break of many, many years I'm trying to get back into programming with learning Java (the last significant programming I did was with BSD 4.2 using C).

One of the things that I scratch my head over is exception handling. It seems like you could spend a significant amount of time writing Try/Catch code. Do you have any rules of thumb or best practices around exception handling?

This is one of the benefits of using Spring Templates to minimize try/catch blocks.
