ScottHi Scott, I don't have a specific test case that requires JRE 1.5, though I wonder what the benefit of having the test not exceed the bundle under test EE in general is? The only reason I can imagine, is to debug problems on smaller devices for which one only gets a CDC1/JRE 1.4 EE.
Bottom line, I can work around JRE 1.5 and don't need anything changed though I'd link to use JRE 1.5 features since they simplify certain things.
Yes, I agree there are some 1.5 features that would be useful in test code (as well as regular impl code). I do wish that Equinox and OSGi would at least plan for move to 1.5.
I think that if there is an 'undue burden' to keep 1.4 compatibility that we should consider having test bundles that use 1.5 features. Maybe we could even come up with/use any conventions that exist (?...perhaps in EMF?) for having both 1.5-specific test bundles alongside 1.4-specific test bundles.
