Java Bug 7171412, awt choice

Hello everybody,

we use a ten year old software in our department (health sector) which won't be updated any more.

Now with Java 1.7.0_25 (and former Java 1.7) we have problems with the known bug 7171412 (

This bug will not be fixed until Java 1.8 (release date ist spring 2014) and there is no workaround in code.

The only workaround is to select any other item from the Choice and then reselect the previously selected item in order for the ItemStateChange Event to be fired correctly.

This is not a real acceptable solution to our problem. We aren't able to wait one whole year for a solution in code.

By the way, there is already a Java 1.8 early access version (which we aren't allowed to use because of CERT and security).

Why Oracle doesn't put it into a patch? We really need a solution very soon.

Does anybody have any tips for us?

Thanks, Carina
