Subject Re: Java 6 [Was: Cayenne and JAX-WS / JAXB]

That seems like a rather short period for Java 1.5.  We are just now
starting to incorporate some Java 1.5 features here (I convinced them
to switch).  Java 1.6 is not an option here yet (Apple didn't release
it for Tiger).  I guess we'll get squeezed by Sun and Apple.  :-)

I'm kind of looking forward to Java 1.7.  Apparently they are going to
allow "void" to auto-return "this" so that you can daisy-chain
setters.  (Something I loved in Objective-C until Distributed Objects
changed everything.)
