        Description

        NetBeans users are reporting that with their new MacBook Pro machines with Retina display, the application and any other Java app they start, is rendered in a blurry way.

        The issue manifests with Oracle's Java 7. It is not manifesting with Apple's Java 6 if the installed application has the following flag turned on in its Info.plist file:

           <key>NSHighResolutionCapable</key>
           <true/>
