Description devon_c_miller 2007-10-19 14:09:58 UTC
Right now if anything is amiss with a file, it gets marked with an error indication.

When I am in the middle of major code changes, there is a world of difference between a javadoc that doesn't match and a
method calling a function with the wrong number of arguments.

Could we please have multiple, distinct error indications?

Keep the current red circle and exclamation point for /errors/; something that will prevent compilation.

An amber/orange circle and exclamation point for /warnings/; will compile, but may be incorrect (unchecked, deprecated,

A yellow circle and exclamation point for /other conditions/; (e.g., inconsistent Javadocs) something not strictly
correct, but will not affect compilation or execution.
