Is there any way to use JDK1.4 compiled classes within WAS4.0

Hi all,
Our company uses WAS4.0 in Production which , I think, is strictly JDK1.3.1. We have a need
to use third party jars which were compiled
using JDK1.4.1. Basically, some of our application code has to be written using those
classes.
Is upgrading to WAS5.0 my only solution? or
is there some hope via some solution?
Any help would be greatly appreciated?
Thanks,
Sudha

I think you will get 1.4.1 support for WAS only in 4th quarter of this year.

It won't even work in 5.0. As the other poster indicated, WAS 5.0 does not yet support JDK 1.4 on the server side. You MUST ask your third-party vendor for a 1.3 version of their libraries.

Thanks a lot, Kyle and Raghuveer.
I have decided not to use the third party vendor libraries now
and will wait for them to produce a 1.3.1 compatible version.
Till then I will use a generic product from Sun( 1.3.1 Compatible)
