Subject [NET] revert to Java 1.5 [was: (NET-494) FTPClient.CSL.cleanUp() fails to restore timeout value on exception]
Date Mon, 03 Jun 2013 22:45:56 GMT
Note that users are still using Java 1.5.

AFAICT the only reason NET currently needs Java 1.6 is because it uses
getBytes(Charset) instead of getBytes(String).

That is not a good enough reason to require Java 1.6.
I am not prepared to create another 3.2.x release as well as work on
3.3 which I think is nearly ready for release.

I therefore propose to revert the build to require 1.5 until such time
as there is a compelling reason to use Java 1.6.

I think the changes will be fairly minimal (apart from the 1.6
@Overrides which are simple but extensive).

Roland Baeumler commented on NET-494:

Is it possible to create a commons-net-3.2.1 version and apply this
fix to this version?
I'm using this library in a JDK 1.5 based project.
