Subject: Problem found with jws 1.0.1ea
X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V5.50.4133.2400
The JWS is a good product, but I have found a bug that I think you should
look into in 1.0.1ea
I am running on Windows2000 Professional sp1 and am using the jdk1.3.0 as
the runtime my program uses (I have not been able to make 1.3.1-beta work
JWS for some reason.).
These problem can be demonstrated with my program loaded from the following
The demo program sets its Look&Feel to the platform native L&F (Windows in
this case). The main window of the program has the proper L&F however any
dialogs raised have the metal L&F if the JWS does not have its "Show Java
Console" option enabled. To demonstrate, set show-java-console to false in
the JWS Advanced preferences page then run the demo above. It should have
the windows look and feel (if run from windows which is the whole point here
anyhow). Now select from the menu bar Help->About, a dialog should open
showing some information. The problem is that it has the metal look and
feel. Now exit the demo and set show-java-console to true and repete the
test. This time you should get the about dialog with windows look and feel
(as it should always be).
