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.
