Please review a fix for http://bugs.sun.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=7149062 at:


The AWTWindow class now inherits from NSObject and implements the 
NSWindowDelegate protocol. The real NSWindow object is held in the 
nsWindow property of the AWTWindow class, and is represented by either 
an AWTWindow_Normal or AWTWindow_Panel instance. These two classes 
inherit from NSWindow and NSPanel correspondingly. Note, however, that 
we still return a reference to the NSWindow/NSPanel instance to Java so 
that the pointer could be used with CWrapper methods directly. A 
reference to an associated AWTWindow instance is always available as 
(AWTWindow*)[nsWindow delegate].

All windows that inherit from NSWindow are added to the windows list in 
the dock icon menu by default. We use NSPanel-based windows for UTILITY, 
HUD, NONACTIVATING, and HIDES_ON_DEACTIVATE windows only, because these 
kinds of windows typically don't represent main application windows, and 
thus aren't expected to be added to the windows list. Besides, UTILITY 
(and HUD?) windows just have to be NSPanels.

This fix is going to be back-ported to 7u6 later on.
