Makes sense.  What about slf4j?

Yes, if our minimum JDK is 1.4 then I assume that we would work under JDK1.5; er, at least
if you don't use Geronimo as an example.  :)


I seen on the geronimo dev list 

"We already support JDK 1.5 except for CORBA.  Because of the CORBA limitation Geronimo can't
be certified on JDK 1.5, but if you leave CORBA disabled (and turn off the DayTrader sample
application) Geronimo should run fine on 1.5.


My vote is to start with jdk1.5 and it seems geronimo already has support for jdk1.5.
