Can anyone explain to me how image buffering/caching works in Java - I can't find this info readily on the Internet. My images are loaded on init and stored as static finals as ImageIcons. Reason I need to know is I have a bug where the images in my application are occasionally getting visually corrupted. And upon refreshing they do not clean themselves up - we have not been able to determine a pattern as to when it happens - it is seemingly random at this point - except that it started to happen after we upgraded to a newer version of the Postgres DB, which should have nothing to do with this issue. We are using RMI though. There is a Java bug, Bug Id 4799519 Synopsis FullScreen: Some methods always returns false in Image & BufferCapabilities, which I suspect is the culprit. Anyone having similar problems or some insight? Many Thanks
