      Description

      ADDITIONAL SYSTEM INFORMATION :
      Documentation issue only.

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The class (interface) javadoc comment for javax.swing.ComboBoxModel uses the sentence "This interface extends ListDataModel and adds [...]"

      There is no such ListDataModel interface. There are ListDataEvent and ListDataListener types, and in prose we speak of a "list data model", but a formal type of that name is not part of Swing. The actual parent interface is ListModel (no "Data").


      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1. Read the ComboBoxModel class documentation.

      2. Become momentarily confused.

      3. Realize it's a minor historical artifact that never got cleaned up.


      FREQUENCY : always
