Hi All,

Please can anyone help. I am trying to re-factor my jar which was initially compiled on java JDK 1.4, I now want to re-factor it to Java JDK 1.6.

How can I do that, I just do not like to de-compile and compile on JDK 1.6

Why do you want to do this? And what do you mean by "refactor"? That's something you do with source code, not class files.

Classes created by a Java 1.4 compiler should run fine on Java 6.
