We ran into a serious bug in Swing “s ActionEvent: getWhen() does not report correctly the time when an event was placed in the event-dispatch thread: http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4511903
As of today, I “ve learned that these are the option to do something about any Java bug:
– Bring attention to the bug by voting over here
– Fix it yourself and submit a fix at
– Purchase a support contract from Sun Microsystems, but I do not know if this will guarantee a solution in a timely fashion.
This particular bug was reported 5 years ago, and even if it did not make it into the top 25 list, it should have been fixed by now hellip;
I wonder what’s your experience in dealing with Sun “s R amp;D team when it comes to bug fixes?
Also, please do me a personal favor: vote for the bug 4511903 to bring it to the top 25 list.
