Subject [DAEMON] Java version?
Date Sat, 16 Oct 2010 12:32:42 GMT
The current build files (Ant and Maven) assume that the Java source
and target versions are 1.3.

However, some of the Java source files make use of methods and classes
that require later versions of Java

For example:

java.net.InterfaceAddress requires 1.6
java.net.NetworkInterface - 1.4

FileOutputStream(File file, boolean append) - 1.4
Arrays.copyOf - 1.6
java.lang.System.getenv() - 1.5

I think it's definitely time to abandon Java 1.3, and require at least
1.4 or perhaps 1.5; but I think requiring 1.6 is too much of a jump.

Thoughts?
