WebKit4Java (Chromium SWT version) to be released this week

Posted by damuchinni on February 16, 2009

The WebKit4Java SWT browser component we are developing here at Genuitec will be released this week. We have worked through many of the issues with enabling the Chromium WebKit framework to function as a proper SWT browser component and to co-operate within the Eclipse workbench and RCP apps. The challenges have been integrating the Chromium message loop to play nice with that of SWT, focus management and plugin support.

This week’s wrap up work includes settling on a product name (I like WebKit4Java much better than Chromius), basic code cleanup, docs, an improved example app and some unit tests. If all goes well I should be able to roll it out by Friday if not sooner.
