Subject Re: 1.3 vs. 1.4 jdk [was Re: [ANN][DBCP][Pool] First Release Candidates available for the 1.1 releases of Commons DBCP & Pool]
Date Wed, 01 Oct 2003 14:03:15 GMT
If I remember correctly, previously we've been releasing the 1.4 compiled
JARs (and that's what the nightly builds are as well).

This seems to work just fine under 1.3 (even 1.2) in pratice, the only
caveat being you should avoid using the JDK 1.4 only methods from JDK 1.3
(otherwise you'll get a NoSuchMethodError or something like that when the
DBCP-delegates try to access methods of the underlying driver that don't
actually exist.
