Subject Re: JDK 1.1.8 problems
Date Thu, 14 Aug 2003 15:20:17 GMT

Well I don't agree with that.  I was able to remove all calls to setBuffer
and getBuffer and now have it up and working fine with 1.1.8.  I would
agree most desktop os's have Java2 but I am using this on an embedded Real
Time OS.  And there aren't many java 2 jvm's out there for RTOS's.  If
there we a great number of problems with keeping 1.1.8 compatibility I
would agree that its not worth it.  But with the minimal amount of changes
I had to make I think it would be worth doing for us poor saps that are
forced to use 1.1.8.  It would keep us from having to fork our own version.

Yep. Totally agreed. If your application needs to do complex HTTP stuff,
then it is too complex for 1.1.8 anyway and you should seriously
consider moving to Java 2. I mean, there is Java 2 for most OS out
there. Mac OS's community obviously is too small that they do not even
manage to provide their own Java 2 implementation.
