Okay, so I tracked down some minor errors in the build scripts of the
source release, and got everything built for the 1.4 JDK using only free
tools. Now I need to figure out the right way to distribute these
packages. At the very least, there will be the following:


The problem with this is that different jars are needed for each
supported JDK (even if I build them all with free tools). Being
consistent with the Bouncy Castle distribution would result in:


And so on for each JDK for which a package was created. You seem to
suggest above creating a single package with different jars for each
JDK, though it is not obvious to me how this would work, as classpaths
would need to be updated accross upgrades (and I didn't find different
jars for different JDKs in libpg-java; are there any other places I
could look for an example of this?). It is unclear to me which of these
two packaging choices would be preferable.

At the same time, it seems that it may be sufficient to simply package
using the JDK version that is currently supported by free-java-sdk.

Any suggestions?
