Hi Sergey,

I tested with get and setLockingKeyState() and it is not supported in all platforms. I got UnsupportedOperationException in Linux and MacOS in our internal test CI system.
Also there can be cases where user has set CAPS_LOCK on explicitly and in that case also test should pass or gracefully exit instead of throwing failure.

And these test cases are not explicitly expecting lower case alphabets, they are just taking input to check focus.
More analysis and how it behaves in internal test system is captured in JBS.

@Phil : Yes we should use equalsIgnoreCase() that would be more cleaner approach. I will update the webrev.
