      Description



        Name: krC82822 Date: 10/15/2000


        (1.2.2 and 1.3.0)
        HotSpot VM (1.0.1, mixed mode, build g)

        On line 659 in Window.java in the java.awt package in the JDK (1.2.2)
        the entire list of child windows is dumped to system.out.
        This is also referred to as "the magic AWT dump key".

        The input for our application comes from a dedicated LCD-screen (for use in a
        professional high-volume copier) which has hard on the screen. One of the hard
        keys produces a "CTRL-SHIFT-F1" keyboard code, which results in a huge dump of
        the entire AWT object tree, which has a dramatic impact on the performance of
        our application.
        What we urgently need is a way of disabling this "feature" of the JDK.
