Comment 2 Filip Hanik 2012-01-23 22:40:10 UTC
This patch would break the 1.5 compatibility for the jdbc-pool as the class SQLFeatureNotSupportedException is not available in 1.5

FWIW, Java 5 reached its end-of-life in Oct 2009.

Pretty much irrelevant, since the reality is that many sites are still using Java 5, and support for Java 5 is available to anyone willing to pay.

Why people using so old Java need latest tomcat? :(
Maybe if they enjoy paying for java support we can provide them some special (un)patched version for some donations? :)
