      Description

      SYNOPSIS
      --------
      Accessibility support for Javaws Cache viewer

      OPERATING SYSTEMS
      -----------------
      All (tested on Windows and Linux)

      PATCH BASE
      ----------
      The attached patch is based on JDK 7u3-b03.


      DESCRIPTION
      -----------
      Javaws Cache viewer does not adhere to the following Licensee's software accessibility guidelines:

      #1.1 Provide keyboard equivalents for all actions.
      #2.2 Provide semantic information about user interface objects. When an image represents a program element, the information conveyed by the image must also be available in text.

      STEPS TO REPRODUCE
      ------------------
      1. Launch Javaws Cache Viewer by "javaws -viewer"
      2. Use any accessibility tool to read the name and description of the controls shown

      Observation:
      Many controls do not have descriptions, and mnemonic is not set for the close button

      FIX DESCRIPTION
      ---------------
      Fix includes changes to three files CacheViewer.java, CacheTable.java and Deployment.java:

      - CacheViewer.java, CacheTable.java
        Call to set accessible name and description for the control we miss out accessible information

      - Deployment.java
        Add additional string to support adding accessible name or description
