Subject Re: [configuration][ALL] compatibility issues with hsqldb
Date Sun, 04 Dec 2005 07:29:43 GMT
I had a similar problem with Dumbster in commons-email.

I downloaded and rebuilt it in jdk 1.3, and asked the developers if
they were ok with that version being uploaded to ibiblio. Luckily
there wasn't already a jar there for the latest release.

I opened a ticket in the Maven jira to get it uploaded, waited a few
days and all was ok.

My suggestion is to work with the hsqldb guys.
