I have some fact client Java application running in IE browser. Earlier it was running with Microsoft JVM. We swiched to Sun JRE to run it few days back. There is another app which records the screen when this app is running. Since we moved to Sun JRE, the screen recorded started giving problem. Still screens are get captured but some dynamic part of scree like list boxes, popu up messages don't get captured.
We ran this to vendor but got replies saying the problem might be that Sun JRE doesn't call Windows GDi by default. Agreed. Still this recording app able to capture some part and some not why it is we can;t figure out. I don't think it is problem of Windows GDI.
Does anybody know why this might have happended that after moving to Sun JRE from Microsoft VM the screen capture problem started ? Does anybody have such experience prior with Sun JRE ? It it something AWT classses are heavy ?
I am not sure so trying to find out reasons of this. So Iam trying to find out if somebody has already such experience with problem with screen recording with app running on JRE and what's expert opinion on it.
Your help is much appreciated..
Thanks !

just a guess, but I've seen odd things fixed by reducing the pc's
hardware acceleration - about 3 notches. if all OK, move it back 1 notch etc

Maybe microsoft Vm have better support than Sun VM on the GDI which is developed by MS.

Reducing hardware acceleration, this option seems to be working. I tested it and now screen capture is lot better than previous one. I went three notch back. Thanks Michael for your suggestion.
