The approach with the old build was by area and good progress had been made but with the new build, then it may have to be by warning type as all areas are compiled together.

Understood. Perhaps we can at least use JDK_FILTER incrementally. Do we have a way to override the warnings used by the makefile?

Any thoughts towards perhaps disabling -Werror but enabling all of the warnings?
