Subject Re: [axis2] [IMPORTANT] JDK 1.4 compatibility - feedback requested
Date Wed, 15 Aug 2007 09:16:55 GMT
Hello all,

I vote for abandoning Java 1.4 support, i.e. go for Java 1.5

and axis2 WSs under JDK6, 5 and 1.4. Nobody said we couldn't. This mix of JDKs is strictly
on the development machines. The production version of our work is running supposedly under
JDK1.4. I have always upgraded the JDK when possible. Staying so-called stuck in one environment
would remind me of using somethng like: .NET. I vote: go-for-it! HAG1, David.
