With Eclipse 3.3, it’s easier than ever to use Mozilla as the underlying rendering engine for SWT browser widgets using XULRunner. This also allows for rich communication between the Eclipse Platform and its embedded Mozilla browser widgets via the JavaXPCOM layer. An array of related technologies are used to make this communication possible including XPIDL, XPConnect, and the XPCOM system. My talk shows you how to make the pieces fit together and includes a demonstration of a GWT web application that seamlessly exposes extra features when integrated within the Eclipse rich client platform. I'll also be providing pointers to more detailed information and example code you can download after the talk.
