Java1.6 support for JGL3

Hi I am working on a Swings application.
The application was developed in Java1.2 and used 3rd party jar - JGL3 (The Generic Collection Library for Java) for working with the data structures - Array, Containers, Maps etc. It is heavily embedded in our application code.
We are planning for a upgrade to java6 and want to know if JGL3 is supported with Java6.
JGL3 is the Java Generic Library used from the third party vendor Objectspace. I was not able to find any articles on the JGL3.
Can any one please share your thoughts. The following link has the details on the interfaces/classes used in this jar.

Any help on this will be of great help for us to move ahead with the Java1.6 conversion.

Welcome to the Ranch.

Don't you think the easiest way to check this is to run your application on a 1.6 machine?

Also it's Swing not Swings ;)

Oops sorry for the typo.
We are in the process of upgrading our application to Java6. But this is going to take some time as we have a 20-25 jars to be recomplied with java6.
We also have to upgrade our Unix server to java6 which is not going to happen very soon.
We are in a impact analysis phase now, so any help in this regard will be highly useful for our impact analysis.
I agree. Here's the link:
