    I installed Tiger into my powerbook. It wasn't an update: I choose to format the HD before. Everything was OK.
    I restored Eclipse and some other Java applications. I noticed these bugs(!?):
    - pure AWT program GUIs are not well updated or, in some cases, dialogs have strange behaviour (like changing their z-order);
    - java applications in general, and especially those accessing HD, are 2/3 times slower than 10.3.9.

    I won't go back to 10.3.9 and maybe everything will be fixed with the next update, but am I the only one to get these troubles?

    Is there a way to submit such problems to OS X developers/Apple ?

    Any suggestion will be appreciated.

    Which JVM are you on? Have you installed the recently released 1.5 JVM?

    I suppose that Tiger was shipped with jdk 1.5... I will check.
    In any case classes were previuosly compiled with jdk 1.4.2, so THEY HAVE TO WORK.
    I also have to keep jdk 1.4.2 since my customers are not all using windows and jdk 1.5 is not available everywhere (SCO, Aix).

    you have 1.4 installed, 1.5 is an extra download for those who want to use it.

    get an ADC membership (free) then goto to submit your bugs.
