Subject Re: [Results] Priorities for 1.2
Date Mon, 16 Oct 2006 18:28:10 GMT
Dain,

Could you clarify the "Full Java 5 support" item some more?   I was 
under the impression when I first read this (esp. the statement about 
certification) that this was the work necessary to get to JEE5. 
However, others have indicated that this is really certification (TCK at 
the 1.4 spec level) but now on a 1.5 JVM.

Thanks,
Joe
