Re: What version of Java is NetRexx java source output really at?
I will take a stab at answering this although I can't verify my guesswork right now. This is just what my fuzzy memory recalls.
Mike released NetRexx when Java was at the 1.1 level. Later when Java went to 1.2, Mike enhanced NetRexx to include the interpreter. After that there were no changes except a few minor bug fixes I think. Since mid 2011 when RexxLA took over the development, we have made substantial changes to fix bugs and to improve performance but no changes to the language syntax or output Java code as far as I know.
As a result, the Java code produced by the NetRexx translator is still likely at the Java 1.2 or even 1.1 level. That information seems of little value however since both the translator and the runtime library use collection classes and compiler API features, etc from Java up to 1.6 now so any practical programs would require that Java level even if we don't add new language features as plans call for doing soon.
