Description

Name: nt126004			Date: 04/24/2002


FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.4.0"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0-b92)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0-b92, mixed mode)

FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION :
glibc-2.2.4-24mdk
Linux lin.home2.mark 2.4.18 #6 Sat Mar 30 10:19:25 EST 2002 i686
unknown
Mandrake Linux release 8.1 (Vitamin) for i586
ADDITIONAL OPERATING SYSTEMS :


A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
When starting Java Applications using JWS, JWS places a toolbar
with the words, "Java Web Start Window" at the top of the frame
(where the normal menu bar should be). This is incorrect. On
Win32 (Windows 2000) the "Java Web Start Window" toolbar is at the
bottom (correct).
 
This is confusing in Linux because the menubar should be at the
top, not the JWS notification toolbar. The JWS notification
toolbar should be at the bottom of the JFrame, just like in
Windows 2000.


STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
1.View the Military Game JWS example in Windows 2000
2.View the Military Game JWS example in Linux
3.See that the text "Java Web Start Window" is in the wrong place
in Linux.

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
the text "Java Web Start Window" is in the wrong place in Linux and Solaris
(it's at the top). It needs to be at the bottom, like Windows
2000.


This bug can be reproduced always.

---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
The Sun-provided JWS demo "Military Game" shows this nicely already.

---------- END SOURCE ----------

CUSTOMER WORKAROUND :
none.

EVALUATION

The location of the Warning Window is dictated by the natice awt code.
the motif toolkit puts it on top, while the windows toolkit puts it on bottom.

We should consider this for Mantis.  
###@###.### 2002-04-28

We are overcommitted for Mantis.  Since there are no objections from 
Java Web Start, I will defer this until Tiger.

It always been at top. Moreover, applet warning is at top, either: if change, let's change applet as well - or should we?

We decided not change this behavior. On Unix platforms, it's consistent; some people may even depend on it.
