Can't click with mouse in java programs.

I am running Ubuntu 12.10 on a Dell XPS 12 (touchscreen convertable) with Java JDK 7 installed.

I am finding that in java programs (Netbeans and PHPStorm), I am unable to click on anything. I can navigate the menus (and installers) fine with keyboard shortcuts but clicking the mouse (or touching the touchpad) does nothing.

Anybody have a solution for this?

I have started using Windows 8 for now so I can move on and start working but I'd still like to get this issue resolved sometime.
