Description

Name: rmT116609			Date: 10/22/2002


FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.4.1_01"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.1_01-b01)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.1_01-b01, mixed mode)


FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION :
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]


EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
Japanese JIS keyboard with Japanese operating system.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
When the character '_' is typed in on java.awt.TextArea, the character '|' is typed in, instead.

The problem occurs only on java.awt.TextArea and  java.awt.TextField with Japanese keyboard.

It does not occur on any version of J2SDK1.3.x.

It occurs only on Microsoft Windows.

It does not occur on javax.swing.* components.


REGRESSION.  Last worked in version 1.3.1

STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
1.Boot any java program that uses AWT Text Components.
2.Type '_' on the Text component.
3.That's all.


EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
Expected:
  The character '_' is typed in.

Actual Result:
  The character '|' is typed in, instead.


ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
There are no error messages.


REPRODUCIBILITY :
This bug can be reproduced always.

---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
import java.awt.*;

public class SimpleAWTTextFrame extends java.awt.Frame {
  public static void main(String args[]) {
    SimpleAWTTextFrame f = new SimpleAWTTextFrame();
    f.setSize(100,100);
    f.setVisible(true);
  }
  
  TextField textfield;
  public SimpleAWTTextFrame() {
    textfield = new TextField();
    add(textfield);
  }
}

---------- END SOURCE ----------

CUSTOMER WORKAROUND :
Cut and Paste, use US Keyboard,  or use javax.swing.* instead.

EVALUATION The problem is that both the yen sign and the back-slash share the same codepoint. Furthermore both characters are represented by the same Java virtual Key VK_BACK_SLASH. In nativeHandleEvent we check whether the user has modified the KeyEvent by converting the Java key char to windows key and comparing if it is different from the Native event stored away in the KeyEvent. If it is different, we then use the new key. The problem is that when we map from the Java key char for backslash to Windows key we always find the first windows key that maps to this which is 0xDC (VK_OEM_5) even though the original windows key was 0xE2 (VK_OEM_102). This looks like a change and we cannot distinguish this inadvertant change from a real user change. ###@###.### 2002-11-04
