        Description

        Specification for desktop event classes, say
        https://docs.oracle.com/javase/9/docs/api/java/awt/desktop/AboutEvent.html
        allows to instantiate an event in environments where AWT Desktop feature is not supported.
        However an attempt to instantiate an event leads to

        =============================================================
        java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: Desktop API is not supported on the
        current platform
                at java.desktop/java.awt.Desktop.getDesktop(Desktop.java:302)
                at java.desktop/java.awt.desktop.AppEvent.<init>(AppEvent.java:42)
                at java.desktop/java.awt.desktop.AboutEvent.<init>(AboutEvent.java:42)
        =============================================================

        in an environment where Desktop is not supported.

        It looks like API specification deserves to be corrected.
