Hi Steve - what I meant was that getappdata has stopped working for pure (un-handled) Java objects within the specific context of a callback function - it continues to work for regular HG handles, and even Java objects outside callbacks. I should probably have made this clear in my post above, so thanks for the chance to clarify.
If this would help get TMW to restore getappdata also for Java objects in callbacks, then all the better. When I first contacted the developers about this, I basically got a shrug... - using getappdata/setappdata this way is apparently not a supported functionality for some reason.
