Why does the mouse wheel fail to work in JBuilder?

Abstract: Using OpenTools to enable mouse wheel support in JBuilder.

Question:

Why does the mouse wheel fail to work in JBuilder?

Answer:

JBuilder does not support the mouse wheel because Java itself does not yet support the mouse wheel (specifically, JDKs 1.3.1 and prior). It is possible that support for this feature may be included in future releases of the JDK. Please refer to the following location for details:

http://java.sun.com

That being said, an OpenTool for JBuilder exists which enables support for the mouse wheel. Please refer to the following location for information and downloads. Please be aware that these OpenTools are officially unsupported:

# 17158 - Linux Wheel Mouse OpenTool (WheelMouse.zip)
