You can still use 1.4, if you use the "compat" package which adds a
few JARs. Usually, you notice something is wrong because Tomcat
doesn't start, and displays an error about JMX missing. I suppose you
have JMX somewhere on your classpath already.

I suppose the XML parser in JDK 1.4 will have issues with schemas, so
any 2.4 style web.xml would create problems.
