FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.4.1-beta"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.1-beta-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.1-beta-b14, mixed mode)
FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION :
Windows 98 [Version 4.10.2222]
A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
Using the file chooser, browse to a directory with many files,
the dialog takes a long time to show. After it shows, it
will takes a long time to show the files.
The folder I tested with has:
1545 files and 49 folders. Note that Notepad.exe open this
There is a related bug that is closed: 4621272
It says that it fixes the bug in hopper, unfortunately, I
have no way of knowing if j2sdk1.4.1 beta is "hopper" or not.
Also, note that the 2 bugs are different. The related bug
show slowness when select many files.
This bug shows slowness by merely open a directory.
Also note that with j2sdk1.4.1 beta, the previous bug is
still there, and select 1 file, the select another file,
there is a long pause between (inconsistently though, and
only happen in a directory with many files - note: just
select 1 file, not many files).
STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
1) Run the application
1) Open a JFileChooser
2) Browse to a directory that has many files
(it's even better to have the first directory of
JFileChooser to have many files to show the effect of slowness).
EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
Things work faster.
This bug can be reproduced always.
