Target Environments

In order to remain current, each Eclipse release targets reasonably current versions of the underlying operating environments. The M2T JET project depends upon on the Eclipse Platform and other projects, which are mostly "pure" JavaTM. The 3.6 release of the Eclipse Platform Project is written and compiled against version 1.4 of the Java Platform APIs, and targeted to run on version 1.4 of the Java Runtime Environment, Standard Edition and later. The M2T components will target a subset of the Java version as the Eclipse Platform Project (typically, Java 5 or later). Eclipse Platform SDK 3.6 will be tested and validated on a number of reference platforms. The M2T components will be tested and validated against a subset of those listed for the platform.
