Hi there,

Are there any known issues with using java 1.5 with Tomcat 5.0x i.e. does it work straight out of the box??? The reason I ask this, is that Tomcat 5.5x requires JDK 1.5 unless you use a connector to allow JDK 1.4.

Thanks for your help in advance.

We've had minor issues related to a bug in the Server VM for Java SE 5, but other than that (we've switched to the Client VM, per a workaround in Sun's own bugzilla), it seems to have plugged into 5.0.x without any problems.

We have been using JDK 5 with Tomcat 5.0.x for about 9-10 months without any obvious problems.
