I'm trying to extend a swing application with an embedded browser widget. So far i've tried SWT_AWT bridge to embed the swt browser widget into a swing panel but no success...
It simply doesn't show up.

Does anyone know how to do this properly?

Here is how i tried it.

java.awt.Canvas canvas = new java.awt.Canvas();


Display display = new Display();
Shell swtShell = SWT_AWT.new_Shell(display,canvas);

final org.eclipse.swt.browser.Browser browser = new org.eclipse.swt.browser.Browser(swtShell, SWT.NONE);;

Try initializing it from org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display. It also needs to be started on the main thread, as I have had problems spawning threads and getting it to run.


private Shell shell;
private Canvas canvas;
private Browser browser;
private Display display = new Display();

display.syncExec(new Runnable() {
			public void run() {
				shell = SWT_AWT.new_Shell(display, canvas);		
				browser = new Browser(shell, SWT.NONE);
