Subject Re: [JXPATH] Java Version
Date Sun, 22 Nov 2015 15:38:24 GMT
Java 7 seems OK to me, though if the code builds and test OK with Java
1.6, why not leave it at that?

Just because Java 1.6 is EOL does not mean that Java 1.6-compatible
code will stop working.

So long as the Java runtime used to run the code is updated to a
currently supported version of Java, that is enough to ensure that any
JVM bugs are fixed.
