Embedding browser functionality in a Java application
- Short about me -
I have programming experience in PHP. eg, OOP/Classes/loops etc etc.
I am understanding the data types and syntax of JAVA etc.
- My problem -
Having just started trying to use JAVA to develop a custom Browser-enabled application. i have hit a solid wall:
I have a simple Java Swing Application. Created using NetBeans IDE 6.8.
i have created a simple tabbed gui, one of the tabs is labeled "Browser".
- My thoughts -
i have looked and googled my fingers to breaking point. i would imagine the best option for compatibility would be to use XULRunner. But i have no idea how to use it with NetBeans IDE, how to integrate it. I have searched for hours on this. Others like Jxbrowser cost money and i want this to be freeware so i dont want to pay anything.
- Frustration -
Compared to something like PHP, Java seems extremely ill-documented, with bits n pieces floating around since 2000. I just cant get any relevant information off any of the websites i view, unless its something really simple. like a hello world tutorial lol.
- Conclusion -
Thank you in advance almighty ones :p
