Description
The fix for 6695506 allows the JVM to accept classfiles with version 51.  This is fine for JDK7, but when the VM is used in a JDK6 release, it should not accept classfiles with that version.  T

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

The VM needs to determine whether or not to accept a classfile version based upon the release it's in.
