Comment #6 on issue 210 by aantono: Java code should detect incompatible runtime library version

In java, the same can be done when publishing the protobuf-java.jar.
Right now, if you look into the 'java' folder of the project, the pom.xml has the same version in it, as it corresponds to the overall protobuf release, i.e. protobuf 2.3.0 would produce protobuf-java-2.3.0.jar Both Maven and Ivy treat is as minor backwards-compatible to protobuf-java-2.2.0.jar, etc... Having the jar be named as protobuf-java-6.jar vs protobuf-java-5.jar would do the trick, since those would be major line differences, and thus deemed not backwards-compatible.
