Hello all,

I'm new to the list so I have not been following the full discussion and
don't know all the issues - excuse my ignorance.

I don't have any objections to moving to Java 1.5, except I know that some
J2EE application servers (both web tier and business tier (i.e. EJBs)) are
slow adopters of the new versions of Java  That being said, would BioJava 1.4
be maintained (bug fixes) for those stuck on 1.4.2?

I know in my case I'm going to be using BioJava in several web services
deploying to pre-existing application servers.  The owners of the application
servers will balk at the cost of upgrading to Java 1.5 (both the JVM and the
application server).
