OpenJDK is 1.6 which is approximately a superset of 1.5. Of course,
those internal classes that begin with com.sun may have changed but
they're internal so there's no guarantee :)
If you absolutely *must* use a Sun 1.5 JDK, just grab the one from Sun
and either run eclipse with it (eclipse -vm /path/to/Sun/java/bin) or
add it as a JRE in Eclipse and make your project build against it .
you can set your project to build against it by right-clicking on the
project, selecting properties, picking "Java Build Path" and changing
the "JRE System Library" to your alternative one.
