Perhaps we are trying to force the build to do too much?

Would it be easier to verify this via testing, than at build time?

For example:
  - to verify that we are compatible with JDK 1.4, we should test under 1.4
  - to verify that we are compatible with JDBC 3.0, we should test
    under JDBC 3.0
  - to verify that we work in a CDC/FP environment, we should
    test in a CDC/FP environment

I have no idea whether this actually makes things simpler or
harder, just wanted to toss this out there to see if it was useful.
