Subject Re: micro version JVM support
Date Tue, 18 Aug 2009 11:07:30 GMT
It depends on whether another significant version of the JVM ever comes out.
In the current state of Java. It is unlikely that 6 or 7 (or 8) are going to
have any significant features that will compel us to upgrade. But, who
knows... once 6 hits its end of life... we may drop support in a micro
version. Next time we'll try to remember to do it in a minor version.
A couple things i will suggest to help you avoid being too surprised. First,
have a good suite of unit tests. Secondly, if your software is dependent on
1.4 make sure your IDE is using the 1.4 compiler during development. You
will find out pretty quickly that a jar is not 1.4 compatible and avoid any
major error during an upgrade.
