hello all,
the method JMenuBar.setHelpMenu() throws an UnsupportedOperationException as it is "not yet implemented". This is the case since version 1.2.
this bug (request for enhancement):
is in the database since 1997! It never should have been necessary to put it there, in my opinion. If they ever planned to implement the method, they should have done that at last in 1.3. If they plan to never implement it, they never should have put the method in the API in the first place.
my request is: Please do vote for this bug. The amount of votes for a bug is considered by Sun.
I am not posting this request because I am in urgent need of this method implementation, nor because I am not able to use the workaround. It's the fact that this method was added to the API to be implemented (I hope: shortly) afterwards and noone ever touched it since (even not after the bug/request for enhancement was posted!). In this case every user of it realizes the lack of implementation at once, but how many other methods are not implemented as they should be, cause someone planned them but never could finish them properly.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
