For those of us using vendor supplied Beans in
our applications, it makes the transition from
AWT -> Swing difficult when we can't use JInternalFrames
because the Heavy components are spilling out. Eventually
the vendors will provide fixes but until then it
would be nice to have Heavy JIF's. Even something
like a heavy Panel would do!

Rendering Java3D inside JIternalFrame is done using heavyweight components while JInternalFrame is lightweight, so the Java3D scene is displayed over all JInternalFrames on the desktop even if the frame on which the scene is located is bottom-most.

EVALUATION Having the Heavyweight/Lightweight Mixing feature implemented, we don't actually need any heavyweight JInternalFrame. At least the problems mentioned in the Description of this CR are succesfully resolved with the fix for 4811096 at JDK7. Hence, this CR is closed as 'Will Not Fix'. However, there still exist some minor issues, though they are a bit of differnet kind. Therefore they'll be resolved with a separate fix (see CR 6552803 for more details).

EVALUATION [2006-10-19 10:19] The RFE seems to be unnecessary if heavyweight/lightweight mixing feature is implemented. See the RFE # 4811096 for more details. ***************************************************************************

EVALUATION Since this RFE would be handled by AWT, reassigning to AWT for further evaluation.
