Deprecate the Support of JDK 1.4 and 1.5

Previously, we were providing three jar files. One for the JDK 1.4, second for JDK 1.5 and third for JDK 1.6 and higher versions. In this new release, we have dropped the support of JDK 1.4 and JDK 1.5. Since, we have provided a single jar for JDK 1.6 or higher versions. It is because both JDKs are discontinued by Sun/Oracle. Even commercial (non-open) support of JDK 1.5 is dropped about a year ago. If you are presently using JDK 1.4.x or 1.5.x, you must upgrade your JDK prior to migrating to this new release.
