Description

Name: gm110360			Date: 09/13/2002


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 :
Windows NT Version 4.0

A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
Entering a bad pattern as the filename in a JFileChooser
causes uncaught java.util.regex.PatternSyntaxException.
For example,  \C.*  will cause this.

Also, there is a typo in the error message. Sequence
is spelled "squence".


STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
1. Run attached code.
2. Enter  \C.*  as the filename and hit enter.
3.

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
Expect an error dialog for the user indicating a bad
pattern or something similar. Instead, there is an
uncaught exception.


ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
java.util.regex.PatternSyntaxException: Illegal/unsupported escape squence near
index 1

EVALUATION The handling of the \ character was incomplete for the windows platform. Other symptoms are that the pattern *.cd would match files like a.bcd and abcd. ###@###.### 2002-10-11
