Subject Re: [Axis2] Moving Axis2 code base into JDK 1.5
Date Wed, 27 Feb 2008 09:59:17 GMT
My concern is that I think there has been a lot of work done since the
last release and the JDK1.4 users will never get that benefit.

So - how about this for a plan.

Release 1.4 asap based on JDK 1.4.
Then do a 1.5 release *very soon after* based on JDK1.5.

That way even the names match :)

Axis2 1.4 can be the last major release targeted at JDK1.4.

As for 1.5, I think in fact it will need two releases - once we start
targeting 1.5 we probably need to do some 1.5 specific stuff like
generating code that takes advantage of generics.
