I believe this is already possible, by using Mozilla's XPCOM interface to the SWT.MOZILLA variant of the SWT Browser widget. It's just not very well documented. For a taste of what's possible, here is a snippet that talks to some of the XPCOM interfaces:
The problem with this approach, I believe, is the footprint you get from creating many instances of SWT Browser, but I might be wrong on that. Maybe someone from the SWT team can correct me if I am wrong.
Bottom line: What you want may already be possible with SWT, today.
May I ask where you are going with this?
