I think a possible way to partly test the wanted behaviour of our  
Swing/AWT component will be to do a pixel compare using a third party  
Look and Feel. A good one for this purpose could be jgoodies [1]. It  
has several different L&Fs and they are all pretty complete.
I know this wouldn't test the L&Fs that Harmony are supposed to ship  
(like Metal and Ocean?) but at least its a way to test the underlying  
engine. All third party L&Fs should be identical on both Harmony and  
RI, shouldn't they?
