        Description

        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        java version "1.8.0_40"
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_40-b25)
        Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.40-b25, mixed mode)

        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
        Mac OS X 10.10 (yosemite).

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        Applications started through webstart cannot get keyboard focus. They don't appear in the dock, nor in the 'Force Quit' dialog.

        For example, you cannot get a cursor in JTextField.

        ADDITIONAL REGRESSION INFORMATION:
        I upgraded my macbook air from 10.9 to 10.10 because customers reported this issue. I had no problems on 10.9, but I am not sure which version of java I was using.

        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        Start any webstart application that has a text field or any UI component that should respond to the keyboard. Hit any key and it will be sent to a different application. There appears to be no way to get the java application to focus.

        For example, https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorialJWS/samples/deployment/customprogress_webstartJWSProject/customprogress_webstart.jnlp. After the table loads, you can double-click on the first column to edit a cell, but you can't get any text in.

        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        Application should appear in dock and receive keyboard events.
        ACTUAL -
        Application does not appear in the dock, and does not receive keyboard events.

        REPRODUCIBILITY :
        This bug can be reproduced always.

        CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
        None found.
