Subject RE: XMLBeans and JDK 1.3

That's quite a few things to take care of to downgrade, but the
sticky point to me is more all the new dependencies this downgrading
would require. Any JDK 1.4 user would tell you that it would be
unnecessary extra weight they don't need...

It's a trade off not all JDK 1.4 might care about... Who knows! --DD

Here is my list of problems (just run javac 1.3 against the XMLBeans
source). I will be glad to get your corrections and suggestions.

Yeah, would be nice, but if we're serious about supporting 1.3, we have
to 
make the call now.   I know I already have a few small 1.4 dependencies
(on 
java.util.logging).  Those would be easy enough to rip out, but some
other 
considerations include:

- Losing built-in exception chaining will be a little painful
- I believe LinkedHashMap was new in 1.4, and I think I've seen it used
in 
a few places
- probably others, can't think of any right now

We can certainly roll our own solutions for these kinds of things, but 
that's something that's always a lot easier to do sooner than later.
Also, 
if we want to do 1.3, we should set up a monkey to run the tests against

the xbean binaries on 1.3, so that we can find out immediately when we 
introduce a 1.4 dependency.
