The reason for this is that the Java run time system appears to be using Direct Draw to display it's output. Direct Draw can bypass the standard Windows display driver, and therefore some screen magnifers which work by intercepting the display driver will fail to magnify it.
You could try using the Microsoft Magnifier, this appears to work with such Java applications!

Subject: [magnifiers] ZX7 unable to magnify Together 4.0
Dear sir or madam,
For a system engineering project I have to use the application Together
v4.0 magnified with ZoomText Xtra level 1 v7.04 under Windows 2000. ZX
is unable to magnify the interface of this application: If the
application is running and ZX is active then the screen-output consists
of normal and magnified portions of the interface mixed together. If I
close or minimize the application then the screen output becomes
consistent. If I switch ZX to passive mode then the screen output
becomes also consistent. Note that the system remains stable under all
Some facts about Together 4.0:
- It is a native Java-application;
- It runs under JDK 1.2.2 and higher;
- The interface consists of objects from the com.sun.java.swing.* class
I suspect the last fact to cause this behaviour of ZX. You can find more
info about Together 4.0 on www.togethersoft.com
