There is a backport to 1.4:


Sources are available, and it is relatively easy to compile them under 
1.3. Try compiling (you need Apache Ant) - you'll get a bunch of error 
messages, but they stem from only a few places. You need to remove 
"assert" statements, remove exception chaining, and in one place, 
replace Boolean.valueOf() with b ? Boolean.TRUE : Boolean.FALSE.

You can also remove all the test sources (the test/ subdirectory) if 
they make trouble.

Ant produces the JAR file that you can then use in your applications.
