Subject Re: Switching to ActiveMQ 4.2 to Java 5???

+1.

We should switch to Java 5 for compilation and for the default release
(since the concurrent stuff is  faster & more bug free on Java 5) but
maybe provide a retrotranslator version of the jars for those who
can't move JVM.

i.e. build on Java 5 only - but allow deployments on 1.4
