It’s The 7! A Major Update for JxBrowser!

It is with great pleasure that we share our big news: please welcome the JxBrowser 7!

With this major update we have rethought the architecture and the API of our classical library, and rebuilt them from the ground up. It will make integration of the web content into Java desktop applications more flexible, more reliable, and more convenient.

With the 7 you can:

  • Simultaneously run as many independent Browser instances in your application, as necessary.
  • Speak to your users in their own language, with localization feature for Chromium error pages and message dialogs.
  • Smoothly print web content directly from your application with a standard Print Preview dialog. 
  • Emulate a web server by intercepting all URL requests and provide custom URL responses in both synchronous and asynchronous way.
  • Effortlessly access JavaScript DOM objects and work with them through JxBrowser DOM API with the automatic type conversion.

Check out the release notes for the full list of news and improvements, and see the migration guide for instructions on how to employ the new version’s possibilities in the projects, where JxBrowser is already used.

Please note, that starting from this version and further JxBrowser will be documented in the new Help Center. The documentation for JxBrowser up to 6.x remains available in the previous support portal.

We are looking forward to your impressions and suggestions on the new version!
