I'm trying to use spring 4 MVC java based configuration to upgrade my web application. Due to other constraints, I can not use latest version of jdk. Can you tell me if spring's java based configuration (annotations) works with jdk 1.6? I believe jdk 1.6 is what supported with websphere (WAS 7).
Be careful if you have any Spring MVC Controllers that are not using annotations where your Controller class extends Spring's "AbstractController" class (or similar) because Spring 4 removed a bunch of those classes. I had this fun last year.
