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.

With that being said, for some time now our WebRenderer developer team has been utilizing a “Test Browser” that is rather substantial (130 classes) when compared to our standard Test Browser (one class). This test browser has been dubbed “Rich Test Browser” by the developer team. Given the amount of WebRenderer features demonstrated by the Rich Test Browser we thought it appropriate to publish the browser for all to use. The Rich Test Browser can be downloaded and includes both binary and source code.

Some of the WebRenderer Rich Test Browser functionality includes:

File menu:
Save As, Save to BufferedImage
Print Preview, Print Preview in New Window, Print

View menu:
Page zoom functionality, text sizing, text selection
Find functions including Find and highlight, Find next, Find previous

Go menu:
Navigation functions such as “reload” and “stop”
Load HTML from clipboard
Browser History functions

Extra menu:
Popup window handlers, scrollbar and scroll position manipulation
HTML Editing mode and insert HTML into page
Javascript execution, sending key presses
Custom protocols, image and plugin handling

DOM menu:
Functions to call many methods in W3C Document, Element and Range

Feel free to download a copy of the Rich Test Browser (including source code).
