    Strategy for handling rolled back exceptions

    Jonas Bergström Newbie

      Hello.

      I posted a question in the transaction forum, see http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=94678 , where I asked whether transactions should be rolled back on java.lang.Error or not.

      I understand that they should, but my real question is rather; should the normal strategy for handling rolled back transactions really apply in this situation?
      In many cases the strategy is "try again". That might work for errors like when an external resource is temporarily unavailable, but not for java.lang.Errors, right? It doesn't make sense to try again after receiving an OutOfMemoryError or a NoClassDefFoundError, for example.
