options(warn = 2) work for you?

Probably need some mods to your Java source to handle this but something like the following would enable you to receive notice of errors/warnings. But it's hard to answer this question in terms of context since I have no idea what you're doing.


         warning = function(w) w,
         error = function(e) e)

And Java programming questions are inappropriate for the R-help mailing list.
