Major Java Updates

I've gone through a huge number of the java packages I maintain, and updated them en-masse. Besides version updates (and a number of new packages) the biggest change is that I normalized them all to target the 1.4 JDK. When Apple changed the default JDK to 1.5, we ended up with some strange issues because of compiling java code using the 1.4 JDK when some jars have been built with the 1.5 JDK.

A few of them (hsqldb, xerces-j-docs, xalan-j-docs, and I think one or two more) require that you build them with a terminal created by a logged-in user, so ssh'ing in to build, or building in a screen session, could fail. Be forewarned. 😉
