        Description

        import javax.swing.*;

        public class JTextFieldTest {
            public static void main(String[] args) {
                SwingUtilities.invokeLater(() -> {
                    JFrame f = new JFrame();
                    JTextField field = new JTextField(20);
                    f.add(field);
                    f.setDefaultCloseOperation(WindowConstants.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
                    f.pack();
                    f.setLocationRelativeTo(null);
                    f.setVisible(true);
                });
            }
        }

        To reproduce, run the attached sample application. Make sure Japanese is
        added to the list of input sources in OS settings. Choose Romaji input
        method, then press backslash ( \ ) key on the keyboard.
        Expected result: yen symbol is entered in the text field (this is the effect
        observed in native applications).
        Actual result: backslash is entered.

        The issue is reproduced with latest macOS (10.13.1) and latest Java (9.0.1)
        versions.
