Subject Re: [VOTE] Sunsetting support for JVM 1.4
Date Tue, 05 Jul 2011 15:53:34 GMT
I am sorry if I was not totally follow all the discussion. If we sunsetting support for 1.4,
will we have a big porting effort to take out all the 1.4 code in derby? What is the schedule
of that effort look like? For customers who is currently using 1.4, what do they need to do
to upgrade their derby system? Will all the necessary changes be in Derby documentation?

Sorry for so many related question,
