Subject Re: Upgrading Java
Date Fri, 20 Jun 2003 07:38:25 GMT
AFAIK the only areas where you are likely to have problems are:

1) XML/Xalan/Xerces files that are also in Java 1.4 (see 'endorsed libs problem' on 
2) JDBC changed from 1.3 to 1.4, so I think there are changes in terms of how that is 
handled. But you can probably work around that by replacing the excalibur-
datasource jar with the new one.

You shouldn't need to recompile anything. 

That _should_ be it. Others may choose to correct me.

I suggest you take a copy of your Cocoon installation and give it a go. (I'm regularly 
switching between 1.3 and 1.4 on the HEAD branch, and don't have 'too much' 
trouble with it).
