NOX: Treat Exception as Solve Failure
Created by: jmgate
Charon has run into an issue where in the midst of a LOCA continuation run a preconditioner winds up throwing an exception. It would be ideal for this instance to be treated as a solve failure such that LOCA could back up, decrease the step size, and keep on going. We may be able to accomplish this by adding some exception handling logic to
NOX::Thyra::Group::updateLOWS(), and then modify that routine to return something that will eventually indicate a solve failure.
