Update: Development of MobiOne has been discontinued. Read the End of Life Notice for more information.


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!
