Subject Java 5 in Jackrabbit 2.0?
Date Wed, 25 Jun 2008 10:21:57 GMT

Sun's Java 1.4.x is reaching EOL status in October, so I was wondering
if there's still need for us to continue using Java 1.4 as the
baseline for Jackrabbit. Upgrading the minimum platform requirement to
Java 5 would give us a) some nice language features, b) the chance to
drop the concurrent library dependency, and c) the chance to directly
use libraries like Apache Tika that are based on Java 5.

Are there good reasons for sticking with Java 1.4? IMHO a natural
upgrade point to Java 5 would be Jackrabbit 2.0.
