Subject [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-4423) [classlib][awt][jedit] Toolkit.getLockingKeyState() is not implemented
Date Fri, 27 Jul 2007 20:55:54 GMT

Vasily Zakharov commented on HARMONY-4423:
------------------------------------------

It IS complicated. I mean, it's not a problem to provide SOME operational implementation,
but it seems not possible to create an implementation that an average user would expect after
reading the spec (see links above - RI still didn't do it). Choosing which RI-known problems
we can tolerate and which not - is complicated.

> Method java.awt.Toolkit.getLockingKeyState(int) is not implemented and throws RuntimeException
when called. This prevents some applications like jEdit automated GUI test scenario from running
normally, see HARMONY-3633, it had to provide a special workaround patch to address this issue.
> Implementing this method may be tough as it requires writing native code, however a simple
workaround patch may be created to improve compatibility while the real implementation is
absent. Here I provide this patch (actually extracted from HARMONY-3633) and my suggestion
is to apply it immediately.
