WebKit Component for Java, Second Contestant

Posted by damuchinni on March 14, 2009

While there weren’t any news related to Sun’s JWebPane, there is a new contestant: WebKit for SWT by Genuitec. The website says:

WebKit for SWT (ver. 0.5) is an embeddable Java™ WebKit browser component developed by Genuitec. This component can be used in the development of a wide range of Java SWT applications that require integration of rich HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and Flash content and functionality.

The solution seems a little bit more high-level than Sun’s approach: While Sun is integrating WebKit directly, Genuitec build on top of Google’s chromium. The biggest difference however at this time: They provide code, documentation and samples.
