HCM Released and a note about HL7 Comm

I’ve released HCM version 0.1 right here. I’ve even included pretty detailed install instructions, which is a bit of a rarity for me, but it’s pretty easy to work with compared to many server-type software installs I’ve dealt with.

Also, a user pointed out on the forum that HL7 Comm might not be working on Java version 1.4. More and more libraries that I’m using aren’t working with versions older than 1.5 these days. This is an unfortunate situation, but I’m not sure if there’s much I can do about it. It’s not just a matter of recompiling a library for 1.4, some may be using annotations or generics, and those don’t easily translate back to 1.4.

I’m not giving up on 1.4 yet, but it’s not supported by Sun any longer, and even 1.5 is getting scarce these days. I hate the relentless upgrade grind as much as any of you do, but the move to 1.5 might be inevitable these days.
