Does anyone recognize a problem like this? It seems to be quite some way outside our own code, but you never know. Someone might have a workaround, or be able to suggest just who to report this to if it is indeed a bug :-)
I tested the drag and drop in the application I'm validation - also a Swing application that runs as an applet inside a browser - and I got the same exception. I'm using JRE 1.7.0_08 and mac osx 10.7.4.
I struggled with this before and I could never make the drag and drop to work on mac osx. As a workaround - with java 6 - you could detach the frame out of the browser (on mac you can use cmd+shift for that) and once you do that, you could use the drag and drop without problems. So, the drag and drop did not work only when the applet runs inside the browser.
On Java 7 you get this exception when you try to use the drag and drop and the workaround we had in Java 6 is also not working, which fire and exception if you press cmd+shift. So basically, with Java 7 is even worse...
With this validation I'm doing I already report 2 bugs in Sun's BugParade. They were both accepted as bugs but with priorities changed to low and I think that one is pretty nasty (7196264) which only happens in Java 7.
Nice to at least finally find some more people who have not only encountered the very same bugs but also reported them. Now, if only it would be fixed or at least some workaround (horrific hack or not) could be found :-) …
For reference, I have now reported this as a bug too: http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=7197576
Any news on this problem?
And what happens to the bug you reported? I cannot find it...
Sadly, no news.
And good question, I can't find it either …
