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
