    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • Resolved In Build:
      1.4.1
    • CPU:
      x86
    • OS:
      windows_98, windows_2000

      Description

      JDK1.4.1 has introdued a reduced resolution under the Windows paltform of Thread.sleep(). This reduction in resolution makes high resolution time-keeping with sleep() break. (Time keeping with sleep() is a workaround commonly in use for the afct that we never supported a decent resolution in currentTimeMillis() on Win32 platforms.)

       ========

      This is also a problem for Java Media Framework on Windows, since they were
      depending on winmm being loaded and having high res sleep in order to display
      video smoothly.
