      Description

      When using --maximized=true when starting a desktop application with DesktopApplicationContext.main(class, args) under the environment described. It works under Windows 7.

      Chris Bartlet found out that there is a Java bug for this issue (setExtendedState in DesktopApplicationContext) and suggested a workaround (calling it twice, once before and once after if not already in that state) before Java 7 is established. It seems it will not be fixed for Java 6 by sun (oracle).

      Mail conversation excerpt included below:

      ---8<--------8<-----------8<--------------8<----------8<------------8<------------8<-----------8<-----------
      Java bug 6365898 - fixed in Java 7
      http://download.java.net/jdk7/changes/jdk7-b14.html

      This looks like it should be the right URL, but it is not bringing anything up
      http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6365898

      Google has it cached though
      http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Abugs.sun.com+6365898

      If the workaround is as simple as it seems to be, then I think it
      would be worth including along with a reference to the bug and a TODO
      to remove it once Java 7 is more established, or if Pivot later
      requires Java 7.
