      Description



      Name: diC59631 Date: 10/29/98


      Java 1.2rc1 looks wonderful, but it still has the
      problem of 1.2b4, only more so. If I attempt to
      run anything on my monochrome x terminal (which
      I have used for the last 3 years developing my
      software in Java), or on a remote linux box
      over X windows (a 16 bit display), the JVM throws
      an exception, informing me that the display is
      not supported.

      Obviously this is not news, as the 1.2 rc 1 release
      notes says that 16 color displays are not supported,
      and that 8 bit displays are the minimum.

      This is really a criminal restriction, which will
      make it impossible for me to migrate over to 1.2
      for my application, and will make it necessary to
      support the client on both 1.1 with javax.swing and
      1.2 (which looks great on the windows platform)..

      Please, please, please tell me that this is not
      something that you have decided never needs to be
      addressed. It does, if UNIX is going to be a viable
      deployment target for my app.
