Java 5 EOSL

Java 5 has reached End Of Life. Most of the bigger organization in the service industry are still using Java 1.4 and are not willing to migrate as they anticipate migration issues and feel that its a risk and unjustifiable. Java 6 has been out for a long and its time to take advantage of the new features, especially the web services stack (JAX-WS). There are lot of performance improvements which might be one reason to migrate.

On a personal note migration is little to do with technical, but more often political.
