@raptortech97: that AWS can do it doesn't necessarily mean your application can do it.

comment Is it possible/good idea to reduce chance of crashing by catching Error?
@SJuan76: of course it depends on the structure of the application, but many (especially servers) have no global shared state, or keep it in a database with transaction semantics.

Usually you'd catch an OOME at a pretty high level, with many objects going out of scope and freeing up space. And if the error was caused by a single oversized allocation request, then there really is no problem at all.

Catching an OOM can often be perfectly reasonable and not a problem at all, when it's due to specific unsatisfiable allocation requests in a subtask.
