For standard API classes, you can use the @since javadoc tag which will indicate
the release it was first introduced in.

For internal classes, there is no easy way, since most don't have an @since tag.
I would probably write a script that checks the rt.jar of each of the JREs that
are archived at /java/re/jdk. The pathnames should be fairly consistent, just
the version number is different.

Chris, do you have any other ideas?
