    Embed Google Chrome / V8 JavaScript Engine

    980266
      Hello!

      I have some questions about embedding a browser with Java FX.

      Is it possible to easily embed Google Chromium (or to use the V8 JavaScript engine) with Java FX / WebEngine?
      Is there a roadmap which version of WebKit is included in which Java FX release?

      Regards,
      Dominik

          So you would have (generally):

          - a browser
          - running a Java plugin
          - running a JavaFX application
          - running a browser embedded

            I would like to have a standalone Java FX application which inside embeds a webbrowser, which is navigated to several web pages.

            The applications accesses the DOM and fires events to the browser.


            I'm searching for a technology where Google Chrome can easily be embedded.

            (Like Eclipse SWT supports this for Safari/Webkit, IE and Firefox/XULRunner)

              JavaFX has no such technology.
