It depends on the classes in question, there is no 1-to-1 equivalence
between Kaffe and any specific Sun Java version, since Kaffe is not Sun's
Java or based on it. JDK/JRE 1.1 is pretty much the baseline, but many
invidual classes (Especially in the CVS version) are compatible with 1.3
API. However, Java2D API/Classes (From JDK 1.2) for example aren't
implemented at all.
