I have a controller that receives a request, passes the data to the service and the service makes an external http call, the answer is returned to the service and then the controller returns a web page.
An error message or an exception could come from the external call.
Should the error check be done in the service that makes the external call or in the controller before returning the web page?

I would follow the good practice to handle an exception in the nearest point where it has been raised, so I would handle it in the service layer, responsible for he remote call.
