I am playing with AWTUtilities... great. but,
Does it supposed to be in java.* package?
Why is the need to make a special API for this functionality?
From the java.awt.Component.setBackground() - "The background color affects each component differently". Could it be easy just make window.setBackground(new Color(0,0,0,255)) work? Just use transparency and call AWTUtilities.setWindowOpacity(this, (float)x/255);
I am not an expert by any means, but I think that the whole idea of update10 is BAD. Sun promised to do not make Java6.x releases and instead made several versions with different functionalities that we all happy to have, but those are not in Java6 standard...
