Subject Re: Does anyone want to run Derby 10.9 on JVM 1.4 or on CDC/FP 1.1?

I think it would be ok to drop testing/support for jdk1.4.  But I think
it continues to be valuable to support running derby on small 
devices/set top devices
through support of the CDC/FP 1.1 platform.

Derby  has a architecture which allows developers to add optional
features that depend on newer jdk features, which has been used in
the past and continues to be supported.
