Good day.

I am using the JDK 5 update 22 (build 1.5.0_22-b03).
I want to check the release date for this JDK and compare it to the 18 months rule.

Just a simple google on "java release date" gave me this hit. I believe at this moment there is only 1 valid jdk to use for your assignment and that's a version of JDK 6.0

Thanks Roel.

I though that the release date also depended on the release of the update of the JDK.
I will use JDK 6 to rebuild all the classes.

The link is mentioned here (in the ScjdFaq). I don't think the updates count, but I don't really know. From this wiki page:
J2SE 5.0 entered its end-of-life on April 8, 2008 and is no longer supported by Sun as of November 3, 2009.
