A pseudo poll on AR error handling... With AR, you have the choice between the following: (1) if thing.save go_for_it else handle_the_error end (2) begin thing.save! rescue RecordInvalid => error handle_the_error end (3) override rescue_action_in_public (ala the recipes book) or do something homegrown, and then just thing.save! --- The questions are: -Which idiom do you use and why? -Are you consistent across your app/controllers, or do you mix and match? -Or do you just trust the gods of the Database and skip error handling altogether?

Depends on what I'm doing. If the probability of having invalid data is feeble (setting a flag on/off, changing a status), I'll use model.save!, to ensure no invalid data is left hanging. > -Or do you just trust the gods of the Database and skip error handling > altogether? Yikes, who would do that ? Where do I put that chicken ? Bye !
