Has this something to do with an email from IBM in the last few days 
asking me if I am really was the creator of my contributions?
Not that I made any mistake (I guess this was a mail to all commons-net 
developers), but I was a little bit irritated.

The jdk1.4 compiler creates a class file suitable to run under an 
earlier JVM, this works as long as you do not use any new api. Then 
you'll get the NoSuchMethod Exception.
This is the reason why we should use the least possible compiler and not 
only the target attribute. You didnt notice if you use any new api call 
at compile time.
