        Description

        Information displayed correctlyusing the java.applet.Applet.showStatus method in 1.6.0_06.
        However, in the 1.6.0_16, all that
        shows up in the status bar is "Done", not any of the information that is
        being passed to the java.applet.Applet.showStatus method

        Disabling the "next gen" plug-in allows this information to show
        correctly. However, this is not a suitable solution, as we require the
        benefits of the "next gen" plug-in. Thus, it appears that between update
        10 and update 16 within the "next gen" plug-in, a bug has been
        introduced that prevents this from working.

        Reproducable test case is attached.
        ShowStatus.zip
        password == password

        The zip file (password = 'password') includes the
        reproducible "showstatus" The "showstatus" bug manifests itself in Internet Explorer 7
        using JRE 1.6.0_16 when an applet exists within a frame of a frameset.
        It may exist in prior versions of the JRE and possibly other browsers as
        well, but does not appear to be a problem in JRE 1.6.0_10.

        Here are the test cases and observed results:


        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        ------------


        Running ShowStatusFrameset.htm with "Enable the
        next-generation Java Plug-in..." turned off results in:




        No applet label information getting painted, but status
        information being written



        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        ------------


        Running ShowStatusFrameset.htm with "Enable the
        next-generation Java Plug-in..." turned on results in:



        Applet label information getting painted, but no status
        information being written, and instead just the word "Done"



        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        ------------

        The result should be both a label within the applet
        getting written as well as the status message getting updated as can be
        seen by running 'appletviewer ShowStatusApplet.htm'






        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        ------------

        As our actual application is not suffering from the
        painting issue, the only concern of CASE #71654978 is the lack of status
        information when using the showstatus method of Applet with the "Next
        Gen" plug-in enabled.
