Subject Re: VOTE: JDK1.2 compiler
Date Wed, 14 Jun 2000 11:04:10 GMT

Problem over here is there will always be people brought into problems
when you stop supporting a particular JDK level. However there are some
distinct advantages by using JDK 1.2 and upwards, these have been
mentioned in this list many times, so I will skip this part :-) Also
many people developing web applications are using the Java 2 platform

Therefore I would say:

 - Tomcat 3.2: JDK 1.1 JVM + compiler (to keep most people happy)
 - Tomcat next: JDK 1.2 JVM + compiler or depending on the release
                date of JDK 1.3 (mainly because of JAAS)
