Problems and Bugs in Java
from Java to native applications in Windows.
ZipFile and non Ascii chars
You can't get the contents of a ZipEntry which name contains 'umlauts'
- precisely any char>127 - with Java 1.2 - 1.4.
It's mostly all right with 1.1.8.
Graphics code for Java
Choose control points for cubic bezier curves
In common graphic environments (Java 2D, Postscript, wmf/emf/WinAPI, SVG)
a cubic Bťzier curve segment is drawn from two base- and two control points.
Little application to play with.
ShapeIcon: use java.awt.Shape as javax.swing.Icon
A little wrapper around Shape to use it as an Icon, e.g. for JLabel,
JButton, JList, JTable, JTree, etc.
Look into bezier.jar for source and usage.
