<AWT Dev> [7u8] Review request for 7193219: JComboBox serialization fails in JDK 1.7

Hi Anton,

After deserialization completes, the components in the 'component' 
collection must all share the same graphics configuration as its parent 
container (which is being deserialized). While your fix resolves the 
NPE, it doesn't yet sets up the child components with the correct 
graphics configuration after the 'component' collection has been 
populated which children during deserialization. I think we should 
probably add a deferred call to updateGraphicsData() somewhere at the 
readObject() method.

Also, should this issue be fixed for JDK 8 first, and then ported back 
to JDK 7u?

best regards,
