Is it true that GWT does not support features of Java 1.5 or higher like generics etc... is there any new version that is compatible with JDK 1.5 or higher.

I also wanted to know about the performance of GWT as compared against DOJO (AJAX). Actually my application is on Struts 2.1 so DOJO is by default included with the Struts 2.x library. But then i wanted to make a comparison as i have known people using GWT with Struts 2.x

I am currently using GWT2.0 along with JDK1.6 and I have successfully used generics on the client side. In fact, if you are using the eclipse plugin and let it generate your xxxAsync class, it will use generics.
e.g.
where User is the POJO being returned from the server side
