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. -- William L. Thomson Jr. amd64/Java/Trustees Gentoo Foundation
