Subject Re: Poll - updating HTTP to newer jetty
Date Wed, 24 May 2006 13:55:30 GMT

That is a good point...we do use the JDK1.2 version of Jetty inside our 
bundle to ensure that it can run on small devices and/or old JVMs. 
Bummer about that. Perhaps we will have to keep the current version 
around as an alternative for those that cannot use JDK1.4.
