Would it be possible to create such reports on a regular basis? Maybe we
could install it on or something?

I have looked into the GapContent failure and I am quite certain that
this is no bug. I have sent a separate email for that one. I will also
look at the other failures now. We should really look very hard at such
failures, often times this is only a misinterpretation of the specs and
the JDK is actually right.

I normally refer to the OReilly Swing book, both editions (they are
quite different in some areas, while the 2nd edition covers 1.4, it
seems they cut out lots of the details that can be found in the 1st
edition). The Sun press JFC books are also very valueable. Anthony and
Lillian lately found that the Swing connection also has loads of
interesting articles that complement the API specs:
