WSAD 5.1.2 and J2SE 1.5 Compiler

Does anyone know if WebSphere Studio 5.1.2 can be used with the 1.5 compiler? I know how to set the JRE to my J2SE 1.5. But when to tell WebSphere which compiler version to use, the only choices are 1.3 and 1.4. (Window->Preferences->Java->Compiler->Compliance and Classfiles: Compiler Compliance Level)

WSAD 5.1 doesn't support Java 1.5. It's more than just pointing to a different compiler since there are new keywords.

Is there some latest version of Websphere that support JDK 1.5

WSAD was renamed to RAD. So you'd want a RAD6 something, but currently none support 1.5.
