Hello,

I want to embed a Browser component into an SWT application (Eclipse RCP). We currently use the standard Internet Explorer to embed the Xopus Editor (http://www.xopus.com) in our application. The problems is, that the IE seems to have a serious memory problem with Xopus (I already tried -Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.IEVersion=10001/11001 etc. for different IE-Versions).
Therefore I tried the following alternatives:


  • XUL-Runner 24: works ok (but Xopus website looks different Sad )
  • XUL-Runner 31: JVM crashes Sad (actually it should be supported by SWT 4.5, https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=437700)
  • Webkit: Does not work when I install the recent Safari (Version 5.1.7). JVM also crashes Sad
  • Embeed JavaFX WebView (using Webkit): seems to work for Java7/8 Smile (Javascript functions are a bit different)


Does anybody have experience with XUL-Runner 31 or Webkit and the SWT Browser on Windows systems? Are there any further installation steps or so? It seems to me, that the SWT-Webkit library is linked against an older Webkit version that is not compatible with the Webkit in Safary 5.1.7 (which is also relatively old).
Does anybody know the roadmap of SWT to support recent Browser engines?

Thank you and best regards
Thomas

Hi Thomas,
Did you tried XUL-Runner 31 with latest Eclipse 4.5.1 release (there are important bug fixes made here) ?
If it's still crashes, let us know the steps to reproduce the scenario or you can directly raise a bugzilla bug report @ https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/enter_bug.cgi?product=Platform

Hi Niraj,
thank you for the information. We've made a couple of tests with the new SWT library and it works fine with XUL-Runner 31. Great thing.
But I have a few more questions.


  1. Does the recent SWT libary also support ESR releases of Firefox (i.e. version 31.8 ) if the XULRunnerPath is Firefox installation directory?
  2. Is there a roadmap or so how future browser versions will be supported by the SWT library?
  3. It was said that the XUL-Runner binaries are no longer supported by the Mozilla Foundation (bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=672509])!? Do you plan any changes here or only the XULRunnerPath needs to be changed to the firefox directory?
