Flash in Java browser – Enabling Flash within WebRenderer

 

Duncan Thomas

 

 

 

 

 

One of the most popular sets of search terms we see in our website statistics relate to enabling Flash in WebRenderer. When we designed WebRenderer, we built it knowing that Flash was still being used and demanded by a lot of users, so we made sure that you could enable it within WebRenderer. Importantly, we made it easy for you to activate. Read more..

Browser Zoom Effect using WebRenderer

 

Duncan Thomas

 

 

 

 

 

We are often asked how our clients use WebRenderer in their projects. There are thousands of different use cases our ingenious clients have come up with that have both delighted and surprised us. WebRenderer is more than just an embeddable Java Swing browser. WebRenderer also gives you, the developer, complete access and control of the browser. Read more..

WebRenderer Swing now supporting HTML5 video

 

Anthony Scotney

 

 

 

 

 

Given that HTML5 is clearly the near-term future of web content display, we decided to implement HTML5 video support within our WebRenderer Swing Edition. This feature is implemented without any external plugins as an “built-in” feature that is entirely lightweight. HTML5 video support is now enabled in our standard download and latest update package.

Enabling HTML 5 WebSockets in WebRenderer

 

Anthony Scotney

 

 

 

 

 

One undocumented feature of WebRenderer Swing Edition is the inbuilt support for HTML 5 WebSockets. WebSockets can be enabled (and disabled) “on the fly” at any time with a simple call to setPrefProperty. Read more..

Applet deployment techniques for platform deterministic libraries

 

Anthony Scotney

 

 

 

 

 

From time to time WebRenderer is deployed within an Applet. Applets provide a convenient mechanism for launching client applications within the browser. WebRenderer however requires different libraries based on the target platform (Windows, Linux, OS X, Solaris) and architecture (32/64 bit). Traditionally to run an Applet, you needed to specify all of the libraries that are required, and they will all be downloaded. If you intend for the Applet to run on multiple platforms, then traditional Applet deployment means that all the libraries for the supported platforms are required which results in the downloading of many unnecessary files.

Mouse gestures with WebRenderer

 

Anthony Scotney

 

 

 

 

 

Mouse gestures are one of those great “add-ons” that enhance browser usability. For those that are not familiar with mouse gestures, they are a browser navigational aid that works via mouse movements. Mouse gestures have been around for some time now and we thought it would be good to show how to implement mouse gestures in WebRenderer. Read more..

Rich Test Browser – WebRenderer features on display

 

Anthony Scotney

 

 

 

 

 

WebRenderer is one of those SDK’s that can appear overwhelming on first look. For this reason we always shipped a “bare bones” Test Browser (TestBrowser.java) with the product. The Test Browser has at times baffled people due to it’s lack of features. The Test Browser was “featureless” by design as we wanted to keep the starter example code as compact as possible so that developers could embed WebRenderer in just a few lines of code. This is important as we never wanted the learning curve and integration to be an overwhelming process. Read more..

Deploying WebRenderer with Java Web Start on 64bit systems

 

Anthony Scotney

 

 

 

 

 

WebRenderer has long supported deployment via Java™ Web Start. With the upcoming GA release of our WebRenderer Swing Edition 6.0 (which supports 64bit systems) we have had some requests for documentation on how to deploy WebRenderer via Web Start on both 32 and 64bit systems. This blog hopefully offers a helping hand to those that wish to deploy across multiple operating systems with differing 32/64bit architectures. Read more..

Deploying WebRenderer Server Edition in Tomcat

 

Anthony Scotney

 

 

 

 

 

Deploying WebRenderer Server Edition in a Tomcat container is fairly straight forward when one understands the basic deployment principles. If you deploy WebRenderer Server Edition into your WEB-INF/lib or any other local project directory you will run into issues when trying to redeploy. When you try to redeploy your application Tomcat tries to reload the WebRenderer libraries (which are already loaded in memory) and is refused. You will then be confronted with a message about an UnsatisifiedLinkError in setMozPath. Even though at this point it may look like the end, Tomcat  comes to our rescue with some specific instructions Read more..
