Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to http://screener.finance.yahoo.com/newscreener.html
2. click "Launch Yahoo! Finance Stock Screener"
3. watch no java applet appear
The stock screener should start.
This is on x86-64, using firefox.
Yes, looks like a Swing JTable bug. Re-assigning to Tania Bento.
This is fixed now in GNU Classpath CVS. We'll close this bug report once we've
backported the fixes to Rawhide libgcj.
Do you have any idea yet when this fix will be moved into rawhide?
It's been 3 months since the bug has been fixed upstream, but Fedora (and RHEL5)
are still broken :(
We retested this yesterday against the new Rawhide GCC which includes Tania's
fix for the JTable bug. Unfortunately, the applet hits another bug in libgcj's
java.util.Currency class (the applet works on GNU Classpath's version of this
class). Tania is going to backport the fix from GNU Classpath to Rawhide.
I checked her patch in to gcc svn trunk and the RH 4.1 branch.
It is r123513 on the branch.
Fixed in libgcj-4.1.2-9.
