Most likely because the binary distributions in the 3.0.x and 3.2.x are supposed to be able to be run under JDK 1.3.x which does not support JDBC 3.0, AFAIK.
Thank you for the reply.
If I understand you correctly, we still need to build JBoss/Tomcat bundle from source with jdk 1.4 if we need to access JDBC features.
On a side Note:
It would be really convenient if JBoss offered a tomcat bundle built with jdk 1.3 and jdk 1.4.
Yes you will have to build it with JDK 1.4.x. Sorry if my reply was a bit obtuse.
I think it was the consensus decision of the JBoss guys to build the binaries for JDK 1.3.x to support people migrating from JBoss 2.x.
The JBoss 4.x releases will only support JDK 1.4.x and higher.
