Yep, that would work. I don't have a java 1.5 environment available at
the moment so I may not get to this before I go on leave ...
Do you have a 1.5 jdk and "ant" installed? If so, I think the only
class that needs modifying is
It should be sufficient to modify the private Area
loadSectionPolygon(BufferedReader bufferedReader) method, remove all
existing code and add something like.
throw new OsmosisRuntimeException("Polygon extraction is not supported
on Java 1.5.");
