I think there should be 1.3 compatible binaries for JTA (as part of
J2EE 1.3 compat requirements). Perhaps its just a matter of finding
them or pinging the project that is producing the ones you are using.

Niall's handling of [validator] [1] is a recent example aimed at
changing the minimum JDK requirement (and potentially maintaining more
than one lines of development based on that, if there is interest).
