JWebPane is long awaited and would be nice to have, but I'd just settle for having generics in Swing. Sure would be great to have a ListModel<Foo> instead of having to cast everything -- it would at least bring us into 2004.
Off topic, but: http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk7/swing/jdk/rev/7bcb1864f424
JWebPane is like ghosts: many people believe they exist, but just a few of them "think" they saw one ;)
That's very interesting, Jesse. I guess I need to download a recent version of JDK7.
BTW, I used the Lobo browser (lobobrowser.org) in a NetBeans Platform application last year. It's not quite what JWebPane is promised to be, but it did work pretty well for simple HTML/CSS.
JWebPane would be very welcome, as I have written:
\* HTML is the juggernaut of our time (SUN has paid a great price fighting it): http://www.jroller.com/dmdevito/entry/html_the_juggernaut_of_our
\* SUN has lost a huge opportunity while not leveraging JWebPane : http://www.jroller.com/dmdevito/entry/sun_has_lost_a_huge
\* HotJava may come back, due to existing, or coming, components, like JWebPane : http://www.jroller.com/dmdevito/entry/hotjava_may_come_back_due
Any release date ?
Use DJ native Swing with an embedded browser. It works with a charm in NetBeans Platform - or wait for JavaFX 2.0 - called WebView. IMHO, you'll never see a JWebPane...
Apparently Geertjan is using Windows Xp for development now. Interesting. What happened to Ubuntu?
Swing Generics: I've long had a set of list, table, and combo box wrappers to address this.
JWebPane: there are a lot of ways to display 'simple' css and html (lobo, flying saucer) which if is fine if you're generating all your html and css. If your app need JWebPane, is really a desktop app, or should it be a web page?
Bob, I received a new laptop from work and Windows was preinstalled. So, still need to disinfect my system and rejuvenate with Ubuntu.
I don't just need to display web pages, I need the capability of controlling a browser window (capturing events, programmatically opening/closing, etc.) and, like many, have been waiting for JWebPane for years. At one point fairly recently Sun/Oracle included JWebPane in their long-range NetBeans roadmap, and then it mysteriously disappeared. I fear the game is over for JWebPane, just another short-sighted mid-management fatality.
Here is my version of JWebPane using JavaFX 2.0 WebView embedded in Swing
Hello,I need help, please.Do you have any sample to use, and control a embedded browser, using the nebeans platform?
