Back/Forward Compatible Feature Request
Maybe somebody has figured this one out besides me. And, I have been reading the compatibility issues between older VMs. But compiling the most basic code in Java5.0 won't work on other VMs. Am I wrong? I have tried the target flags and other things. But, I get that minor/major version error. This is mainly with Tomcat, so there maybe class loading issues that might allow for the 'target' flag. And, I read I can add version info to the MANIFEST files.
I guess I mainly need backward compatible. If the code is 1.3 code, if I compile with 1.5, it should work in a 1.3/1.4 runtime. Or unless I am doing something different, maybe it does?
What are your thoughts, I see this has been debated here before.
