uPortal 2.4.x does not compile or run under JDK / JRE 1.5. It works best under JDK 1.4.x. uPortal 2.4.0 and 2.4.1 support JDK 1.3. uPortal 2.4.2 probably works under JDK 1.3 but it is not particularly intended to support JDK 1.3. Since uPortal 2.4.2 the 2-4-patches CVS branch has acquired dependencies on JDK 1.4 features such that 2.4.3 when it is available will require JDK 1.4.
If you need a uPortal that supports JDK 1.5 consider uPortal 2.5.
