JDK6 backwards compatible AutoCloseable from a libraries perspective

  Hello everyone,

I would like to support the new try-with-resource feature in jocl while 
staying backwards compatible with JDK5/6. The problem is that 
AutoCloseable resides in java.lang which means i have no chance to load 
the class if i would ship it for jdk5 backwards compatibility.

Providing two builds for JOCL is not what i would like to do just to be 
able to be upwards compatible.

any ideas what i could do in this situation?

best regards,
