Hi,

The integration of various JDIC features (Desktop & SystemTray APIs) is welcome, but it's a real shame that the FileAssociations API was omitted (or did I miss it?), as that's an important feature of desktop integration.

Any chance of this? I certainly hope so, even at this "late stage", as the code's already there in JDIC...

Thanks,
Chris

I totally argee with you.

JDIC has some good subprojekts, i tested the FileAssociations API, but if you talk to someone in JDIC forum or Mustang they are prod of that small piece of code added to Mustang. Its really a shame.
SUN talks about JDIC since two years, and whats the result...a small Desktop Class and TrayIcon :/

Time to wakeup,
Jens

I've just spotted this over on the main Sun Java site:
http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/J2SE/Desktop/jdic_assoc/

No mention of integration into the core, despite the "desktop focus" of mustang. There's a mention of platform-specific behaviour regarding actions, but hey, that never stopped inclusion of JNI or Runtime.exec() :-)
