Subject RE: 5.0.29 JSP compilation fails when using JDK 1.5.0
Date Thu, 07 Oct 2004 12:32:40 GMT

Thanks for spotting and reporting this issue.  While Tomcat 5.0.x
doesn't officially support J2SE 5.0, we don't want to make things worse
with new releases ;)  So my apologize for this issue.

I'm really busy today and tomorrow at work, and then I'm traveling this
weekend [it's a long holiday weekend in the US].  If someone could at
least post a .diff patch to fix this, I'd be grateful and I'll try to
commit it quickly.  If we wait for me, this issue might have to wait a
few days ;)
