Create a java app with a text field (see TextTest.java attachment).  On a Sun Ray, run the java app.  Enter some characters such as #*%().

Unplug your keyboard and plug in another keyboard with a different layout (such as Danish, UK, German, etc.).  Enter the same characters.  They will not map correctly and will show different characters.

On a gnome-terminal or a dtterm, this works correctly.

EVALUATION See CR # 5099725. Back port from jdk7 to jdk5 is impossible. Customer agreed to have a fix in jdk6 only.
