JDK 1.4 & 1.5 - End of Service Life in Oct 08 and Oct 09
According to [http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2|http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2] and [http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5|http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5], Java SE 1.4 (i.e. the basis of NetWeaver 2004 and NetWeaver 7.0) reaches the End of Service Life in October this year. Java SE 1.5 (the basis of NetWeaver 7.1) reaches End of Service Life in October 2009.
Has anybody seen a statement from SAP about how this might affect customers? Sun mentions a "Java SE for Business" product as a replacement which will be supported for 15 years, but this may require the replacement of existing JVMs...?
