Any serious backward-compatibility problems with Java 5?

Dear Experts,

Are there any significant backward-compatibility problems going from Java 1.4 to Java 5?  

I'm not asking about problems with new features.  I just want to make sure my existing code will work as is.

Thanks,

If you're running code compiled in 1.4 on 5, you should be OK.

Never had a problem from 1.4.2_10 going to 5 (presently 1.5.0_07).
Only thing to mention is that deprecation of System.getenv() was undone: only an advantage.

;JOOP!
