With respect to the exception handling section of the OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Study Guide, does the book contain any advice about how to decide when to try to recover from exception conditions vs when to just write the error to the log (or System.err)?
In most of the introductory texts I've looked at, the exception examples simply write the errors to the console. I guess I'd like to see more realistic example applications showing good examples of exception handling. Can you comment on the sorts of examples used in this section of the book? Are books focusing on exam objectives a little constrained in this area?
