RE: [cdt-dev] Java 6 support

We should continue to build with the Java 1.5 VM and not allow the use of Java 6 APIs. But I think a lot of people using the Sun VM will be using Java 6 as their runtime which shouldn't be a problem.

There are a few differences. Here's one I found out about the hard way a while back.

    /** .... @since 1.6 */
    public IOException(String message, Throwable cause) {
        super(message, cause);

After this I would expect there are more. I know we'll be using CDT 4.0.x on Java 5. It's probably reasonable to expect Java 6 for CDT 5+, but that expectation should be explicit and broadly communicated.

RE: [cdt-dev] Java 6 support

Seems safe. I haven't seen any Java APIs that changed between 5 and 6,
at least one's we're using. I'm sure most of us are using Java 6 for our
runtimes anyway.

Just wondering, is it safe to assume that CDT 5.0 supports Java 6?
