Subject Re: JVM version policy Was: Re: Build failed in Hudson: River-trunk-jdk1.5 #3

I think that Peter correct. River can potentially support both Java 1.5 and
1.6 in the future by implementing a modular build environment and using a
profile/API approach. In my opinion the fact that the Jini community refused
to address this issue was a serious black eye for the project.
