Java 6 and Java 7
While Java3D and AWT works fine on older hardware, the newest workstations show flickering and distorted AWT components.
Java3D canvas shows OK. However, after editing e.g. AWT combobox in a neighbouring panel the AWT components are no longer displayed correctly. They show partially distorted, partially normal with strong flickering on every action/ update in the Java3D canvas. Other windows (non-Java applications like start-menu and web-browser) also get distorted and flicker.
It is not possible to work with the Java3D application for a user due to these effects.
Screenshots do not show the distortions.
The error occurs on Java 7 and Java 6.
