Right-Click Menu Doesn't Show Up In an Applet Text Field After Upgrading to Java SE 7 from Java SE 6 (Doc ID 1930913.1)

Last updated on APRIL 29, 2020

Applies to:

Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 7 to 7 [Release 7]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Environment: WLS 10.3.6, Red Hat Enterprise 5, Java SE 7 update 51

After upgrading to Java SE 7 update 51 from Java SE 6, users can no longer right-click in an applet text field and select 'paste'.  Right-clicking to bring up the context menu does nothing in most cases.  Adding "accessClipboard" to the java.policy file does not help.
