In general I agree to keep the stuff modern. But perhaps we should do this a bit more gracefully.
Wait until we have a reasonable good release and then announce to discontinue it in one of
the next versions so that people can prepare for this step.

Subject: OpenCMIS and Java 6


A long, long time ago we decided to compile OpenCMIS with Java 5 and it made sense at that
Today, Java 5 has reached End of Life, Java 6 found its way into even conservative enterprises
and Java 7 is not far away.

Is there any reason to stick with Java 5 or can we update to Java 6?

There are actually a few Java 6 features (for example the CookieManager) that would help us.

Any comments?
