Saving dirty data from Applet

Hello,

I am trying to save dirty data. After confirming with the user that he wants to save his changes, I wrote code to force a ToolbarController.SAVE event.

I create this event in a SwingUtilities.invokeAndWait code block.
The reason being that I want to allow sufficient time for the dirty data to be saved (from a SaveAction Thread) before destroying my active applet.
I wrote this code in the shutdown() lifecycle method.

The problem is during testing the dirty data is lost.
Any suggestions what could be the problem ?

Here is the code snippet;


SwingUtilities.invokeAndWait(new Runnable() {
   public void run() {
         toolbarController = new    
             ToolbarController(ToolbarModelFactory.getSystemwideToolbarModel());
             ApplicationEvent evt =
                             new ApplicationEvent(ToolbarController.SAVE, toolbarController);
          toolbarController.handleApplicationEvent(evt);
   }
});

I rewrote my code as follows:

                 System.out.println("SwingUtilities.invokeLater - before CommitAction.start");
                new CommitAction().start();
                     System.out.println("SwingUtilities.invokeLater - after CommitAction.start");

And get the following stackTrace:
Catch ApplicationEvent !!! Force Save of Mutable Table fields.
SwingUtilities.invokeLater - Before
SwingUtilities.invokeLater - before CommitAction.start
SwingUtilities.invokeLater - after CommitAction.start
SwingUtilities.invokeLater - After

Could it be that the CommitAction Thread does not have time to complete before the change of Applet ?
