Description puybaret 2005-04-12 21:41:56 UTC
Reading, I noticed that NetBeans does not run with the 
screen menu bar under MacOS X due to a bug in the JDK. As the issue mentioned in http:// was a problem in Java 1.3 
under MacOS X 10.2, I wonder if it would have been fixed in Java 1.4 under MacOS X 10.3. 
By chance, Apple changed in Java 1.4 the system property used to set the menu bar at top of the 
screen. It's now apple.laf.useScreenMenuBar that must be set to true (please read http:// Using 
this new property would help to support the screen menu bar only for people using Java 1.4, but it 
would be better than nothing, wouldn't it?
I tried to add this property in the script that launches netbeans and it worked as expected. But as 
I'm not (yet) a power user of NetBeans, I don't know how to test the old bug mentioned in menu bar.
Please, describe precisely in which case there is an issue so I can test if it works correctly. Thank you...
