Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3966) Do not require JRE 1.4 libraries at compile time since SUN's JDK 1.4 went out of support and can be used on JRE 1.4 without any problem

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-3966:
--------------------------------------

Thanks for replying, Knut.

I see your point about wanting to use Java 6 features. I think we are caught between two goals
here:

1) the desire to compile the entire Derby system out-of-the-box

2) the desire to capitalize on improvements made in later releases of the VM

Until we can require that developers have a Java 6 compiler, I think that satifying (2) may
introduce some ugliness (e.g., more stubs). I'm not happy about that, but I could live with
it in order to satisfy (1).
