A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
AWT/Swing should support animated cursors. It should be possible to create custom animated cursors.
In todays modern desktop environments, animated cursors are very common. Unfortunately, the createCustomCursor does not accept multi-frame images, so it is not possible to create animated custom cursors in AWT/Swing. To support the acceptance of Java on the desktop, this should be made possible. Custom animated cursors are necessary for some special kind of applications, e. g. in machine controlling, where the animation could show not only that a process is running (as hourglass cursors do) but also WHAT process is running (by selection of the kind of animation).
EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
Toolkit.createAnimatedCursor should support animated Images (multi-frame Image).
Toolkit.createAnimatedCursor does not support animated Images (multi-frame Image).

Since J2SE doesn't support this, there cannot be any kind of test.
