RE: [abc-users] Warning instead of error when type is not found

No, I am not aware of such a switch and in fact I am not sure why ajc
does not give you an error as well. Why should it not be an error to
reference a type which does not exist? It's certainly an error in any
Java program.

Subject: [abc-users] Warning instead of error when type is not found



abc sends an error when a type is not found in some pointcuts, where ajc
would just emit a warning. The following code, for example:

public aspect MyAspect {
   pointcut foo() : this(AClass);

Since AClass does not exist in the system, abc throws a "Could not find
advice formal or type "AClass"", while ajc just gives a warning. Is it
possible to send a command line argument to abc, so that this error
becomes a warning? I read the pdf with the command line options but
could not find that.
