Re: [Subclipse-dev] Logging and Java1.4

Hi Mark,
Eclipse 3.0 already requires Java 1.4 so i have no problem with this.
The only problem i can see will come from the other jakarta libraries we
are using (commons-lang and regexp). They may require commons-logging
(i haven't checked on this though). It may even be possible to use the
1.4 regexp stuff to replace jakarta-regexp.

I don't understand why people would be putting commons-logging into
their lib/ext directory. It is only supposed to be for 'standards' jars
(like LDAP, JAXP, etc). Adding arbitrary stuff is asking for trouble.
