Subject RE: [DISCUSS] JDK 1.4 for Tapestry 3.1
Date Thu, 10 Jun 2004 15:24:12 GMT

In my field (pharmaceutical/oil/utilities industries) everyone has long
moved to 1.4.

I could see no problems (and multiple advantages) in Tapestry using 1.4 API.

Nevertheless, I appreciate that there are organizations for which it is
going to be an issue. Which 1.4 features are you planning to use? Will it be
possible to isolate them, so that a custom 1.3 build will still be

I'd temper that with a note of caution, many big organisations have a much
slower turn around time, the suppliers of software have to upgrade it to be
compatible with the newer JVM, then the organisation itself has to evaluate
and upgrade.

We've only recently gone to 1.4, because we've only recently upgraded
oracle software, which itself demanded 1.3 for quite a while after 1.4 was

In point of fact if we were still running our appservers on the UNIX we had
been using we'd *still* not be able to upgrade to 1.4 and be supported by

My Point?.. Make sure that your reasons for upgrading Tapestry's
requirement are sound, and don't do this on a whim just because you fancy
messing about with nio or jdbc3.
