This update release specifies the following security baseline: In December, 2008, Java SE 1.4.2 reached its end of service life with the release of 1.4.2_19.Future revisions of Java SE 1.4.2 (1.4.2_20 and above) include the Access Only option and are available to Java for Business subscribers." Code to demonstrate: import javax.swing.*; import *; import event.*; public class Test Scrolls extends JFrame implements Runnable (Review ID: 102906) ====================================================================== EVALUATION The submitter says that Text Areas work correctly, but JText Areas do not, so I am reassigning this to Swing.
Of course I tried to make a lot of convenience improvements with this update everywhere I could, but its scope is still huge and I possibly missed a few spots here and there and I can’t really replace all the legacy in just one update even though it took quite a while.This piece of code in an applet works correctly: JText Area ta = new JText Area(); JScroll Pane sp = new JScroll Pane(ta); public void init() public void Action Performed(Action Event e) If I move the ta.append() line outside of the Action Performed() box, however, when the entire JText Area fills up, it won't continue scrolling down like I want it to (and like the old Text Areas do).The code that doesn't work is as follows (and this is just a test, mind you): JText Area ta = new JText Area(); JScroll Pane sp = new JScroll Pane(ta); public void init() (Review ID: 52291) ====================================================================== Name: st C104175 Date: 03/27/2000 bash-2.02$ //e/jdk1.3/bin/java -version java version "1.3.0rc1" Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.0rc1-T) Java Hot Spot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.0rc1-S, mixed mode) When you append() a line to a JText Pane in a JScroll Pane, the way of scrolling depends on how you append it: a) in a Thread - no scrolling to the new text b) in a Listener - scrolling to the new text (desirable) This is inconsistent and IMHO confusing to the user, who doesn't care about threads/events and just wonders "why is this scrolling differently from that?This post purpose is to ensure that everyone are aware of these changes and of the fact that nothing will actually change for commercial Web La F users.These changes will not cancel or affect any freedoms granted by the agreement anyhow and are only focused on making agreement more convenient.
