Subject Re: [Trinidad] JDK5 EOL, upgrade to JDK6?
Date Fri, 19 Jun 2009 18:34:02 GMT
Do you mean the @Override annotation on interface implementing
methods? Yeah, that's annoying.

But IMHO no reason to force users to move to JDK 6. The companies I
see, are currently using 5 (some even use 1.4).
What feature of JDK 6 do you want to use? Besides the (Concurrent)
Collections API I don't know any features that are of much use for

I think it's very important for any software library to keep its users
happy. Forcing users into a new JDK if they want to upgrade (maybe
because they are interested in a bug fix) won't make them very happy.
