    Thursday, February 2, 2006 - 14:43 by Wayne Beaton
    At least one reader of my entry a couple of days ago expressed concern that Eclipse 3.2 might require the use of Java 5. Well it doesn’t. No need for alarm. Apparently there are two plug-ins in the SDK that require the use of Java 5 and if Java 5...
