As strategic members of the Eclipse Foundation we enjoy giving back to the open source community when the opportunity arises. This time we're releasing  WebKit for SWT (ver. 0.6), an open-source embeddable Java™ WebKit browser component.  This component can be used in the development of a wide range of Java SWT applications that require integration of rich HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and Flash content and functionality.

The goal is for SWT to serve as a technology platform for the open source mobile web initiative, Eclipse "Blinki" Mobile Web DevKit and the MobiOne mobile Web IDE. (Get MobiOne for free at the milestone 4 stage, here).

WebKit for SWT is available under the open source EPL license and is distributed in two forms:

1. Follow the link below to access the zip archive containing the required Java libraries and examples for use by standalone Java SWT application developers.

2.Here's the Eclipse update-site for the Eclipse RCP application and tool developer:  http://opensource.genuitec.com/webkit4swt/

Please first view the  WebKit for SWT Developer Guide to get started, then download the software here.

Thanks, and please let us know what you think!
