      Description

      Java 1.5 is approaching its End-of-Life (EOL), which is scheduled for 30-Oct-2009:

      For Sakai 2.5 and Sakai 2.6 (which currently is being QA'ed for release with Java 1.5) this means a switch to Java 1.6 at some point during their maintenance cycle.

      For Sakai 2.7, which is tentatively scheduled for code freeze in late 2009, this means we should start thinking about switching development of trunk/2.7 to using Java 1.6, and when it enters QA, it will be QA'ed with Java 1.6.

      For Sakai 3.0, which is still early in development, this likely also means a switch in development and QA to Java 1.6 at some point soon.
