Hello Keith,

It is true that we are writing logback using JDK 1.5, and logback's primary target is 
that version of the JDK.

However, we've released JDK 1.4 versions of the logback jars, translated with 
Retrotranslator[1]. These jars are in the jdk14 directory, inside the logback 

You might give them a try :)
