No, it doesn't work with older JDK's. Here is the problem. The class 
file structures have changed with newer versions, and cannot be read by 
older JRE's

You cannot compile a newer JDBC with an old compiler since the 
interfaces are not implemented ( among other things ) , and the  newer 
jars cannot be run with older JRE's

We didn't go to all the trouble of making it really hard to understand 
for the sake of obsfucation.
