No problems here. Although there was an issue with Tomcat 5.5 having war
deployment or redeployment issues when compiled as 1.5. Something to do
with differences in Catalina.jar. But it wasn't really wide spread, nor
was a bug ever filed on it. So that could become an issue if 1.4 is
removed. Worse case we have to find problem or take some other action.
Also might be some fun with jdbc-jaybird. But otherwise I have no
problems, and your welcome to touch any package I maintain as needed in
the process. Just try for little to no borkage. If you sprinkle while
you tinkle, please be neat and wipe the seat :)
Thanks for the effort, and initiative.
