Does anyone still need Java 1.4 compatibility?

Postby robert » Tue May 13, 2008 11:16 pm

Does anyone out there using RText still use Java 1.4? If you do, post here, along with the reason why they cannot upgrade to at least Java 5. Java 1.4 will be reaching its end of life on October 30. Moving forward, I'd like RText to be "migrated" to Java 5.

Opinions and thoughts are welcome.

Yes, I need it.
I'm working on an Jre 1.4 large server farm based on HPUX...
Me and my collegue, we are developers, are working on JR1.4 machines
We all want to get over on 1.5, but for now the company will not move...

A reply! :)

I think I'll keep RText at 1.4 for awhile longer (at least through 1.0 and a few updates after that). There aren't really any 1.5/1.6 features that would greatly improve the app, and those features I do need I can add in via reflection after checking your JRE version, so they don't break backwards compatibility.
