RE: [dsdp-pmc] Re: What do you think
about e4 using Java5 ?
I was actually thinking about bundles such as
which includes Jobs -- adding some util.concurrent
APIs to Jobs in order to support asynchronous
use-cases would be interesting. Currently, the
bundle is specified to comply with "Foundation 1.0"
which is a subset of J2SE 1.3: http://www.eclipse.org/projects/project-plan.php?projectid=eclipse#appen
I'm wondering who might really need such a "low"
specification. Any pointers appreciated.
PS: Thanks for your insight on CDC / JSP / JSR.
