The Wannabe Java Rockstar: JRex - Embedding Mozilla in Java

JRex - Embedding Mozilla in Java

Everybody knows: HTML rendering with Java is a nightmare. I've been looking for a decent HTML renderer for almost four years. Back then, XBrowser showed potential. Development seems to have stopped, though, leaving it at HTML 3.2 level.

In his article on java.net, Joshua Marinacci tests a couple of open source HTML renderers. The situation seems to be as it was four years ago: the pure Java renders can handle only simple pages.

JRex, on the other hand, handles almost any webpage as it embeds Mozilla. Check out the screenshot:

While this solution is not Pure Java, it's crossplatform enough for my taste. I'm sure, customers don't mind either.
