I have been debugging some issues that an application has been having with Java 1.7 versus older versions. A new problem I have encountered is that the right click context menu does not function in any TextField. It works fine when running/compiling it with any previous version of Java. I have tried coding a simple test with a Frame, Panel and TextField to see if it might be something else in the more complex application that was causing it, but the simple test class has the same problem.
I have searched for other people having the same issue, but I have not found anything comparable. This seems like a huge change from one version to the next and I am surprised that I am not finding this mentioned anywhere else. Can someone point me to anything that discusses this issue that I am having? Does 1.7 require I implement my own context menu? I realize AWT is old technology, but this is an old, fairly complex application that doesn't use swing, and that is not going to change at this point.
My simple test:
class testF3 extends Panel
public static void main(String args)
Frame f = new Frame();
Panel p = new Panel();
TextField tf1 = new TextField("", 20);
Dimension medm = f.getSize();
medm.height = 100;
medm.width = 200;
