      Description

      The current GeoAPI target is unclear. Officially, we target J2SE 1.3, but we have some 1.4 dependencies like Color.WHITE instead of Color.white. We have a choice:

      • Either GeoAPI target 1.3, in which case the above-cited dependencies
        must be fixed.
      • Or either GeoAPI target 1.4, in which case we may take this
        opportunity for using orther J2SE 1.4 objects (like java.net.URI
        instead of java.net.URL).

          This issue has been open for a long time, and I'm not aware of strong demand for J2SE 1.3 support. Since there is already J2SE 1.4 dependencies in current GeoAPI (e.g. CharSequence), and since J2SE 1.4 may help us to solve performance bootleneck (e.g. java.net.URL vs URI), closing as fixed. GeoAPI now target J2SE 1.4. If this is a concern, please reopen this issue.
