Subject Re: Dropping JDK 1.2 support for Xerces-J (and possibly JDK 1.3? 1.4? in the future)
Date Tue, 11 Nov 2008 13:08:50 GMT
+1 to dropping 1.2 support.

Please - be sure that the main website clearly lists the last release we 
think that Xerces worked on JDK version x.y.  Xerces is ubiquitous, and 
is used directly or within other products virtually everywhere.  While 
we don't need to spend developer time worrying about ancient JDK 
versions, we should make it clear where people who have to stay on 
legacy systems can get an appropriate release.

I'd love it if we ensured that we feature a prominent link and host the 
download for the zip/targz plus it's key file for "the last known good 
Xerces with JDK x.y" as we drop support for earlier releases.

Thanks for bringing the item up!
