FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.3.1"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.1-b24)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.1-b24, mixed mode)


A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
The javax.swing.JList.setListData method is overloaded to
accept a java.lang.Object[] or a java.util.Vector.

In Java 1.2, the collections were redesigned. The interface
java.util.List was created. Many developers (myself
included) started using Vector less, in favour of the List
interface and alternate implementations thereof.

But I find that setListData API still requires a Vector. It
should be deprecated, and another overload accepting a List
should be added.

This bug can be reproduced always.
