Hi guys, I cannot find a place to discuss Java 5.0 or asking questions about, thus i am using this place (sorry if here is wrong place). Nowadays, in my company, i am bothering to impose people that we should migrate to tiger. Besides Tiger's nice new features and better performance, i am using the basis that we cannot use some open source projects which require 5.0 (e.g JUnit4.0, Hibernate Annotations etc..). Therefore, i am insisting on that we should migrate to it. Do you know some other open-source projects, products which require Java 5.0 ? I am preparing a list for these projects and use them as for my insistence. thanks lot,
What would you be migrating FROM? My project is currently stuck on 1.3 because that's all our framework vendor will certify for our old version of the frameork. You may be able to find good justification in the JVM ... improved garbage collection, just in time compilation, etc. I think with Sun JVMs 1.3 to 1.4 was a significant improvement. See if your JVM vendor makes any such claims.
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
