Patrick Hunt updated ZOOKEEPER-210:
-----------------------------------

    Attachment: ZOOKEEPER-210.patch

Update to java6:

1) updated docs to spec 1.6 as min
2) updated build.xml to use java6 api (link to api docs on java.sun)
3) updated zkServer.sh and docs to use Managed*Main versions (jmx) of server.

I didn't explicitly require 1.6 in the build.xml, don't think that's necessary 
at least for the time being.

I will update the JMX specific documentation as part of ZOOKEEPER-177

> We should require Java 6 for release 3.1.0. At this point there is full java6 
> support on all major platforms (linux/windows/macosx).
> The vast majority of ZooKeeper contributors use Java 6 when developing, and 
> hence do run into (usually minor) back-compatibility problems.
> I believe there are also some benefits regarding JMX (updated spec support in 
> java6) if we drop java 5.
> FWIW: Hadoop Core has also moved to require Java6:
