             Bug #: 863
           Summary: Error passing strings to applet methods in Chromium
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: IcedTea-Web
           Version: 1.1.3
          Platform: x86_64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Plugin
        AssignedTo: dbhole at redhat.com
        ReportedBy: edmccard at hotmail.com
                CC: unassigned at icedtea.classpath.org

Short strings passed to applet methods have trailing garbage.

Using the following applet and html code:

  \\ BadString.java
  public class BadString extends java.applet.Applet {
      public void badString(String param) {
        System.out.println("length: " + param.length());
        System.out.println("value: " + param);

  <!-- test.html -->
  <applet name='BadString' code='BadString.class'></applet>
  var applet = document.applets["BadString"];

...the reported length of the strings varies from 4 to 6 (it is always at least
one greater than the actual length) and the "extra" characters are garbage.
Strings of length 6 or greater don't seem to have the problem.

Tested in Arch Linux 64-bit, icedtea-web-1.1.4, Chromium 16.0.912.77.

It works as expected with Chromium/Oracle JRE, and with Firefox/IcedTea.
