Simple Integration

Load URL

import com.teamdev.jexplorer.Browser;

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;

 * The example demonstrates how to embed Browser component into JFrame,
 * and load the http://chromium.org web page.

public class BrowserSample {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Browser browser = new Browser();

        JFrame frame = new JFrame();
        frame.add(browser, BorderLayout.CENTER);
        frame.setSize(800, 600);



Internet Explorer in Your App

With the JExplorer API, you can download HTML pages, navigate through them or to other pages, set and get HTML content, prepare page for printing, work with advanced browser options, and many other things.

Custom Menus

If you app need a custom context menu shown on a web page instead of a standard shown by the browser, you can easily set it.

Cookie Management

JExplorer supports both persistent and session cookies. You are free to use them in a variety of ways: create, modify or delete, set and get their name, value, domain and other information. Learn more.

Capturing Web Pages

With JExplorer you can make a screenshot of a web page, either its visible part or the entire content. See example.

Browser Components

JExplorer provides a visual browser object for embedding in a Swing/AWT UI. This object integrates native MS IE web browser component that renders web pages. So, web pages are rendered exactly as in MS Internet Explorer.

Access to the DOM

You can work with DOM of web pages in many ways: manage elements in a document, modify element attributes, apply element styles, fire an event on some element, manipulate data in the HTML form elements, etc.


JExplorer allows modifying default user-agent string that will be sent to a web server.

Proxy Settings Configuration

JExplorer allows you to configure global proxy settings for ftp, http, https, gopher, socks as well as those available for a current process without affecting global proxy configuration. See example.

Execute JavaScript Code

The library allows executing JavaScript code, intercepting JavaScript errors, and handling JavaScript dialogs such as Alert and Confirmation.

Support for Events

With event listeners you can: register and listen to DOM events, handle JavaScript errors and various states of the browser, listen for a start and completion of navigation, track page downloading progress and more.

JavaScript Java Bridge

JExplorer provides API that you can use to register Java callback function in JavaScript environment on the loaded web page to invoke Java code from JavaScript.

Access to Advanced Settings

With Browser class, you’ll be able to access Internet Explorer advanced settings. You can disable ActiveX controls, block navigation to any page with a malformed URL, enable or disable a pop-up blocker, and more.

JExplorer is a really cool tool… Akquinet Agile, akquinet.de
My company, Currenex, ended up purchasing a JExplorer licence. So far we are happy with it, we have used it to replace JDIC which was quite problematic for us. For us the JExplorer API was much richer than the JDIC API. Scott Chan, Currenex Inc.

Licensing Questions

Our licensing is based on versions of JExplorer. Having purchased the licence for our product you get the right to use the current major version of the product.

Major and minor version upgrades issued during your active Standard Support subscription period are free of charge. Upon expiration of the Standard Support subscription you can renew it with a 25% discount from the actual licence price.

You only need to purchase 2 licences. We licence our library by the number of people who write code using our library.

You can distribute unlimited number of copies of your product with our library enclosed.

You may want to purchase a Project licence, which is cost-effective in case there are 3 and more developers on the team. The Project licence is bound to a single project you do, but it allows any number of developers in your company to work with our library.

Project Licence is bound to your project via a fully-qualified class name. A fully-qualified name for a class is the package name followed by the class name, separated by a period (.). For example: com.mycompany.myproduct.MyClass

This can be any class of your application. The only requirement is that it should be included into your Java application class path.

When we say “project” we have in mind one product of your company including your future product versions or potential derivative works based on your product.

The Project licence is tied to one project only.

The best solution would be to purchase the Company–wide licence, which covers any number developers and projects in one company.

Upon the licence purchase you will receive a licence archive with two types of JAR files: development.jar and runtime.jar. Development.jar is intended to be used in the development process. Runtime.jar is to be used for distribution of your software with JExplorer enclosed.

Yes, you can purchase JExplorer Source Code Licence; it is provided on a per developer basis. Please contact our sales team if you are interested in this option.

If you are doing an open source or academic project, you can apply to get a free licence. Please submit a request via Open Source or Academic tab on the evaluation form.
