Interesting comment.  So, where is the value add for compiling with JDK6?
Most of our users are using the binary drops of OpenJPA.  Having OpenJPA
built with JDK5 works just fine for this case.  And, for the development
people that attempt to build OpenJPA, having multiple versions of the JDK
available seems to be very common place.  I, myself, have at least half
dozen different versions of the IBM and Sun JDKs available in my development

Are there specific features or enhancements that come about from moving to
JDK 6 for our build environment?  From what I know, there are no glaring
performance improvements like we experienced when moving from JDK4 to JDK5.
I don't disagree that it would be nice to be buildable with JDK 6, but there
doesn't seem to be a huge advantage for pushing for this feature.

Comments are welcome.  :-)
