Welcome to the forum!!!

I chose to chain mine. I have IOExceptions, EOFException, etc., at the data file level, and I catch them and throw higher-level exceptions, such as DBParserException.

I think you will find that this method is the most reliable one. It allows you to find out at the top level two things:

1) the original cause.
2) the original error message.

Alternatively, you could at some point change the message to a more generic form, i.e., instead of something being wrong with an IO operation, just write that database file could not be accessed, for instance.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
