Thanks for your feedback.

The classes were indeed compiled on a JDK 1.3 using the 
maven.compile.executable property. Unfortunately the jar manifest refers 
to the 1.4 JDK (probably because this is the JDK that runs maven). Is 
there a way around this?

I also had to tweak my local pom because of that jdbc dependency. I 
agree that this is not an ideal situation, especially because that 
dependency is only needed by a test class. Will see whether I can get 
rid of it.

I will also take care of the points you mentioned, Robert.

Oliver
