Hi All,

Please review the fix for JDK11.





     This issue and JDK-8208127 was caused due to regression caused by 
fix for the issue JDK-8204860.

     I had a relook at the original issue fixed on Windows OS 
(JDK-4980161 <https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-4980161>) and 
found that the fixes proposed by my earlier fixes were wrong w.r.t to 
the behaviour on Windows and Ubuntu. The issue (JDK-4980161) on Windows 
was that “non-focusable maximized frame was resizable” but a focusable 
maximized frame was already non-resizable (working as expected).

Please read the problem description of issue JDK-4980161: which says 
“Typically a maximized frame is not supposed to be resizable.”

I verified the behaviour on Windows and Ubuntu and found that a 
maximized Frame (frame.setExtendedState(Frame.MAXIMIZED_BOTH)) is not 
resizable irrespective of Frame’s focusable behaviour. On Mac OS this 
behaviour is not implemented i.e. the problem is “maximized frame is 

So the problem which needs to fixed on Mac OS is “Maximized frame should 
not be resizable irrespective of its focusability”

Therefor I have reverted my changes to the original state (before fix of 
issue JDK-7158623 <https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-7158623>) 
and propose to fix the problem on Mac by creating a new issue.
