Subject RE: New ANT Image Transformation Tasks

Sorry for the mistake.
The Task works with Ant version 1.4 onwards only. Could you please change

The Task uses an image core library that has the implementations for using
ImageIO, AWT, JAI, etc. The required implementation is loaded at runtime
based on which of these imaging libraries are available.

Since ImageIO requires Java 1.4, I have to compile it with j2sdk-1.4 or
higher. But this would make the jar unusable to others who are using this
task with j2sdk-1.2 or j2sdk-1.3.

Hence I compiled the ImageIO implementation with j2sdk-1.4 (anyway it is
available at runtime only if you are using j2sdk-1.4) and the rest of the
classes with j2sdk-1.3. Thus the classes meant for use with other JREs < 1.4
will also work.

Is there a better way of getting the same effect?
