There is no user requirement , Commons daemon is still keeping minimum
dependency on java 1.5, we were thinking to move on minimum 1.6, nice to
hear there won't be any issue with tomcat since it's already on 1.6

For moving to much higher i.e. java 1.7 I'm sure daemon will take another
2-3 year for keeping stability across projects.
