java version "1.4.0-beta2"

Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0-beta2-b77)

Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0-beta2-b77, mixed mode)

In the javadoc for java.awt.event.WindowListener.windowClosing(),
the line, "If the program does not explicitly hide or dispose the
window while processing this event, the window close operation
will be cancelled," is incorrect.

java.awt.Frame requires a user-defined WindowListener to call 
hide() or dispose(), but javax.swing.JFrame, by virtue of the
setDefaultCloseOperation() method, does not.

EVALUATION The javadoc should probably be expanded to indicate this. ###@###.### 2001-12-06 Yup. I backed out the comment from WindowListener and added a comment to Frame. Reviewed by Eric, approved by CCC. Fixed for tiger. ###@###.### 2003-10-16
