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.
