    • CPU:
      sparc
    • OS:
      solaris_2.5.1

      Description

      [1] Install jsJDk1.1.8-BuildI on a 2.5.1 machine in OpenWindows.

      [2] Install required patches to enable euro-support. They are available from
          sunsoftpatch.eng or sunsolve. They are as follows :

          SPARC : 106518-02
          X86 : 106712-03

      Both patches have additional prerequisite patches listed in their documentation.
      These must also be installed.

      [3] Download and run the EuroTest applet available from :
          http://www.ireland.sun.com/~ddt81029/eurotest/

      [4] Run the EuroTest applet.
      [5] Euro symbol displays correctly on the applet Panel but pressing
          AltGraph + e or AltGraph + 4 should display the eurocurrency symbol in
          TextFields and TextAreas. It fails. Using the same key combinations in the terminal window does display the symbols correctly. Problem would seem to
          lie in the java -> peer keyboard mapping not taking AltGraph into account.
          Compose Key + c + = should also display the symbol but doesn't.
