The problem is that my code contains Enums and Generics which are not supported by JRE 1.4.  Therefore, if I want to deploy the application, it has to be on JRE 1.5.x.  The question is, how can I use JRE 1.5.x on WAS6.0?

I think you can configure the JRE and set it to 1.5

You can use an application client that runs in a 1.5 JRE, and that connects to resources within WebSphere, either on the same machine (locally), or on a remote machine

Look for the section of the table that has the following in column 1:

Java
The WebSphere-supplied Java 2 SDK is required for both the run time and any remote Java clients

I sort of gave up on it and began re-coding the application a week or so ago....Thanks for the response though :-)
