Subject Re: minimum supported Java version
Date Mon, 23 Apr 2007 13:42:30 GMT

I believe it still is Java 1.2.

I cannot test the standard builds on it anymore and for my linux 
environment i cannot build and test it anymore.

I remember some discussion from 2 years ago vaguely but can't remember if 
it came to a vote.

I'd vote in favour of dropping support for both 1.2 and 1.3 if a vote was 
called. (both 1.2 and 1.3 have completed the SUN EOL process)
(1.3 on solaris 8 is still in the EOL process as per customer support 

I could see this as a general mechanism, we do not support jdks in 
new releases anymore that have completed the end of life process.
