[Jersey] Question about Java 6, Java 7 and JSON media extensions in Jersey?

Iıve noticed that both Jackson and Moxy seem to be compiled with Java 7.
Reading through the docs, it appears this is due to an API from Java 7 EE.

Iım currently bound to a Java 6 platform. What are my options for JSON
media type conversions in the Jersey client? Do all the Jersey JSON Media
type extension require Java 7 now?
