[MacOSX 10.12] Pressing a modifier key results in NullPointerException thrown by applets

    Details

    • CPU:
      x86
    • OS:
      os_x

      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.8.0_102"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_102-b14)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.102-b14, mixed mode)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      macOS Sierra Golden Master

      System Version: macOS 10.12 (16A319)
      Kernel Version: Darwin 16.0.0
      Boot Volume: Sierra


      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Applets expecting user's input throw a native exception if any of the modifier keys (Caps Lock, Shift, Alt, etc) is pressed.

      This issue occurs to all the Java applets tested so far (RDP, SSH applets).

      While rendering poor user experience in general, this issue is especially bad for the fullscreen applets as the pop-up dialog is hidden beneath the main window and user cannot perform any further action being trapped into their fullscreen session (e.g., RDP applets).

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1. Go to the SSH MindTerm Java applet page:
      https://www.rbvi.ucsf.edu/home/tef/ssh/

      2. When applet window is shown, put focus into it and press some modifier key, e.g. Caps Lock.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      The modifier key applies silently, e.g. for Caps Lock the letters default register is switched.
      ACTUAL -
      Java shows the "Internal Error" dialog asking the user to either "Continue" or "Crash" the Java process.
