Which java? 4-5-6?

Monday, April 3rd, 2006

While GNU Classpath is finally reaching its first release, Sun has recently released the 2nd beta of Mustang – Java 6.

For what I know, most and major applications (I’m talking about banking apps) still runs on Java 1.4, so it’s still worth developing with it.

If you were to choose the Java version of your next webapp or client, will you choose Java 5 (maybe hoping and waiting for Harmony), will you prefer 1.4 (planning to develop it with Classpath) or will you get yourself “on the edge” and use the latest build of Mustang?

I would prefer 1.4 as I don’t feel to trust Harmony that much…
