[macosx] Accented characters input inhibited if run with Java WebStart

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • CPU:
      x86
    • OS:
      os_x

      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      1.8.0_25, Oracle Corporation, Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Mac OS X 10.10.1

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      This is an upstream bug for:
      https://josm.openstreetmap.de/ticket/10786

      A user complains about the input of accentuated characters being inhibited in Swing components if the application is run with Java Web Start. It occurs with both 7u71/72 and 8u25. The problem vanishes if the application is run as an OSX package, so it looks like an incompatibility problem of JWS.

      Problem observed with a French layout keyboard, if that's relevant.

      REGRESSION. Last worked in version 6u45

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1. Launch application as Java Web Start
      2. Enter text: abcdef 'éèàç

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      1. App launched
      2. Text displayed: abcdef 'éèàç
      ACTUAL -
      1. App launched
      2. Text displayed: abcdef

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Do not use Java Web Start
