[wtp-dev] Server tools framework move to Java 5


Since the beginning of WTP the server framework (wst.server and jst.server) has been based on Java 1.4. Since Java 5 is now dominant and prereqs like facets have already moved to Java 5, it's time for us to move too. Starting in WTP 3.0 M2, the server framework will move to Java 5.

This change will not affect API or other usage - it is a largely internal change that will allow us to make use of Java 5 features and type safety in collections. We have no known adopters still using 1.4, but if you have any comments or concerns, please visit bug 201570.
