Subject Re: Java 5 in Jackrabbit 2.0?
Date Wed, 25 Jun 2008 10:33:49 GMT

I am for using Java 1.5.

Another option would be to switch to Java 1.5 and provide some
documentation or a build profile that uses Retroweaver if Java 1.4 is
still required. I have never used it and I don't have an opinion on
it, just to list the option: http://retroweaver.sourceforge.net/
