Subject Re: merlin on jdk 1.3.1
Date Sun, 08 Sep 2002 14:50:16 GMT


I've just finished recutting the service package to use URLs instead of 
URIs. The updated version isn't complete (still some more work to do in 
the service location operations) but I'll have that in place later 
today.  In the meantime Merlin will build and function normally under 
JDK 1.3.  I have retracted the activator package while I rethink the 
URL/URI issue - but that should not effect anyone because its only a few 
days old (it's the content dealing with distributed containers). It will 
come back in as a auto-recognized plug-in extension.

Cheers, Steve.
