Subject Re: Getting closer with Java7....
Date Tue, 08 May 2012 07:24:43 GMT

Thanks its a good step in the right direction.

For quickfix, there is a new release (1.5.2), we could possible try to
see if that is compatible with Java7

And we need an osgi bundle for it anyway, so we may publish it in the SMX repo

For the fix in, i wonder if the hardcoded namespace to
  @XmlType(name = "converterList", namespace =
would be an issue for Blueprint XML, as we have the schema as:
    "" instead
