Since it was a long time ago details are not very fresh in my mind but
touched spec, implementation and compatibility. I believe both
the spec change portion and the code changes involved a lot of back and
over several months or maybe longer.
The key questions were how to most compatibly fix the problem that
support was equated to a particular window manager and to further enable
participating applications to be informed when the system tray
availability status changed.
The referenced patch includes a specification change, adding the new
property used to
detect if the state of the systemTray has changed. That is not
appropriate. Even if its
not detected by an extant JCK test, its a spec change which can't be in 6.
I think the part of this where the availability of the tray is
determined by the system
tray protocol instead of the window manager should be OK.
That part was in fact backported to JDK 1.6 update 10.
