Actually I don't get the point of such stupid policies, when developers 
cannot even test their software to create either fixes for their own stuff 
or report bugs for the vendor's stuff.

All you can say now is: Apache Commons Codec is incompatible with IBM JDK 
1.5 due to unknown JDK errors. Perfect marketing strategy.
