Hi Sergey,

You are right, it is better to use synthesizeWindowActivation(). Please find the updated webrew here: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~dmarkov/8205479/webrev.01/ <http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~dmarkov/8205479/webrev.01/>

 - Overrode synthesizeWindowActivation() for CEmbeddedFrame. It calls handleWindowFocusEvent() which actually activates or deactivates embedded frame.
 - Added updateGlobalFocusedWindow() to CEmbeddedFrame. This method should be called when the focus is transferred to embedded frame programmatically since handleWindowFocusEvent() skips activation for non-focused embedded frames.

>> On Mac OSX when focus is transferred to some component located at embedded frame, CPlatformEmbeddedFrame.requestWindowFocus() is called to activate owning frame. However that method does nothing, (i.e. no activation happens). As a result the focus cannot be transferred to the component because its owner is not active.
