Subject Re: Move plexus dependencies to java 1.5 (Important!)
Date Thu, 09 Jun 2011 09:41:37 GMT
Will this affect toolchains from using the older javac and running
tests with older jvms?

toolchains is the recommended way to compile with older java versions
and run tests with older java versions...

I see no reason, as long as toolchains based invoking of older java
versions is not affected, with moving our runtime requirement up to
java 1.5
