Comrades,
Can somebody tell me if the JXTable and JXDatePicker components are accessible? My project is for the Feds, so accessibility is a requirement. I would like to use these two components, but I'm not sure if they meet the accessibility requirement.
I've noticed that the JXTable component implements Accessible. I'm not sure if this means it has full accessibility support or not.
It looks like JXDatePicker doesn't implement Accessibility.
Can somebody give me a clearer answer? Thanks.

JXTable extends JTable, so if JTable has all of the Accessible features then so does JXTable.
JXDatePicker does not have an Acessible implementation, but we would be happy to update the code with any patch that you provided.

core accessibility (at least regarding JTable and al) is crappy (to put it mildly)

I'm not surprised, to be fair I've never dealt with Accessibility and don't know anyone (directly) who has. Probably doesn't see a lot of eyes.
