      Description

      Name: jl125535 Date: 10/09/2003


      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      Solaris:
      java version "1.4.2_01"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_01-b06)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_01-b06, mixed mode)


      FULL OS VERSION :
      Solaris:
      SunOS sun1 5.8 Generic_108528-21 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Blade-100

      Linux:
      Linux buzz 2.4.19-4GB #1 Fri Sep 13 13:14:56 UTC 2002 i686 unknown

      Mac OS X:
      Darwin mac1 6.6 Darwin Kernel Version 6.6: Thu May 1 21:48:54 PDT 2003; root:xnu/xnu-344.34.obj~1/RELEASE_PPC Power Macintosh powerpc


      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Run one of the demo applications, for example:
       java -jar /usr/java/demo/jfc/Notepad/Notepad.jar


      Now certain characters cannot be entered from international keyboards (non-US). Specifically and disturbingly: []{}.

      On a Danish mac keyboard these require opt-8,opt-9,shift-opt-8,shift-opt-9
      On a Danish pc keyboard connected to the Linux machine analogue sequences are required.

      Outside java application the characters can be generated with out problems (shell, xedit, ..)

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      run X Windows on a system (XFree, Apple X11)
      Login into a Solaris machine from one of the 2 systems
      start NotePad, java -jar /usr/java/demo/jfc/Notepad/Notepad.jar

      You have to run remotely to see the problem, most likely with localized keyboards on the remote systems, for example Danish.

      Now key sequences do not produce []{} as expected.

      Mac OS X: opt-8,opt-9,shift-opt-8,shift-opt-9

      Linux: altgr-8, altgr-9,altgr-7,altgr-0



      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
