cannot copy to the system clipboard using the mimetype = 'image/svg+xml'

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • CPU:
      x86
    • OS:
      windows_7

      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.6.0_16"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_16-b01)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 14.2-b01, mixed mode, sharing)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The attached java code performs the copy operation, by creating a custom data flavor using the command: DataFlavor("image/svg+xml").
      The copy operation completes successfully, but the mimetype name is mangled. Monitor the result using the Windows program Clipview.exe, from http://www.peterbuettner.de/develop/tools/clipview/index.html

      The data shows up under the name 'JAVA_DATAFLAVOR:image/svg+xml; class=java.io.InputStream' instead of the expected mimetype, which would be just 'image/svg+xml'.


      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      run the attached code and check the mimetype in the system clipboard

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      image/svg+xml
      ACTUAL -
      JAVA_DATAFLAVOR:image/svg+xml; class=java.io.InputStream

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
