This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
Developed my project on Windows XP platform using SDK 1.4 While testing the client on Unix machine (running SDK 1.4) I get the following warning: Warning: Cannot convert string "-monotype-aerial-regular-r-normal--*-140-*-*-p-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct Amazing thing is that nowhere in my client (or for that matter on server) am I specifying any font! Any suggestions on how to deal with this warning? Thanks for your suggestions.
Hi Kim, I developed my application under Windows XP too, but didn't do any testing on a Unix machine. I documented this issue in my choices.txt file. It did not affect my score. I cannot help you with the warning message. I'm as as you are. Cheers, Kerry
Hi Kim, I have a vague recollection that this is something to do with the default language set up on the Unix machine. But I don't remember the details. Also from memory:
the application should continue to run after this warning is given
if you run one of the demo applications that comes with Java you should get the same warning
If those two assumptions are correct, then I wouldn't worry about it: this is a JVM configuration issue and the examiner should have their configuration correct before looking at your submission. I have moved this to the Linux/Unix forum, as you may get definitive answers there. If anyone would like to add their comments, you can now find this thread here. Regards, Andrew
