Well, when Sun released 1.5 they also proposed, that a new JDK version will now follow every
year (and Sun will phase out the support for the old ones therefore much earlier). If they
really mange to do so, you will get really out of sync. Meanwhile even some of our customers
of the financial business realized this and they already start to upgrade (although they are
traditionally *very* conservative).
