Not compatible with JDK7

simple update of spec to jdk7
Package have direct dependence on jdk6, which is going to be dropped. Although in spec file is written "We require Java 1.6 because we support JDBC 4.0, not 4.1" works fine after update.
However - the compilation have passed, but I'm very scared that all the "class for name" and "methods per name" will fail in runtime.
Upstream only got around to adding JDBC 4.1 support last year, so the restriction to 1.6 was appropriate when I put it in, but it should be unnecessary with the current package. If the package builds and appears to supply all the expected methods then I think this should be okay.
As far as the specific proposed patch goes, why did you leave in the comment that the patch turns into a lie?
Feel free to remove the comment when updating to jdk7.
I have not found (in upstream's) that 4.1 support was added.
Tyvm for clarification! (my sleeping will be much easier now ;)

The documentation leaves something to be desired, but I found this in the upstream mailing list:
