Subject RE: Redback core issue with jdk 1.7 as prerequisite
Date Mon, 14 Apr 2014 09:34:37 GMT
1.6 fallback is enough for me (for now)
But If it's time to move to new tech or framework, I'm seriously out of
knowledge (or rationale) on where to go.

Seems the best immediate solution.

If you're going to do that amount of work, I think it's worth seriously
considering if another framework (Shiro, Spring Security) might better fit
the needs, and either replace Redback or reduce it down to things on top of
that. But I'm not volunteering :)
