How You Can Use JxBrowser

Cross-desktop Apps that require web browser capabilities Google Maps in your Java Desktop Apps Automated Tests for web applications or services Taking Screenshots of web pages
Cross Desktop Apps

JxBrowser can be used to display modern web pages and HTML+CSS+JavaScript content in your Java applications. It allows building GUI of your cross-desktop application using any popular HTML5 UI toolkit.

Learn More

Using Google Maps API

Using JxBrowser you can embed Google Maps into your Java Desktop Apps and communicate with loaded map using JavaScript Google Maps API to zoom in/out, display a specified location, change map type, etc.

Learn More

Automated Testing

With full access to loaded web page’s DOM and JavaScript you can find DOM elements, extract useful information from document content, fill and submit web forms, execute custom JavaScript code, etc.

Learn More

Taking Screenshots

You can take a screenshot of a web page including hidden scrollable area and save it as an image file. This functionality can be used in developing a web service that provides image of a web page by its URL or for automated tests when you need to compare screenshots of the same web page to find regression and changes.

Features


Lightweight and Heavyweight Component

JxBrowser supports two rendering modes: lightweight and heavyweight.
In lightweight (off-screen) rendering mode Chromium engine renders web page off-screen using CPU.
In heavyweight (GPU-accelerated) mode the engine renders content into a native window embedded into your Java application using GPU. Learn more.

Flash and Silverlight

JxBrowser allows displaying Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight contents. You will need to have Flash plugin and Silverlight installed.
Learn more.

Browser Events

You can listen to different web browser events such as Load (StartLoadingFrame , FinishLoadingFrame, FailLoadingFrame , DocumentLoadedInFrame and DocumentLoadedInMainFrame), Title and Zoom change events. Render process events such as RenderCreated and RenderGone are also available. See example.

DOM Access

You can find required HTML elements by tag name or ID, get/set HTML element attributes, listen to different DOM events such as click, mousedown, keydown, keyup, load, unload etc. See example.

JavaScript Dialogs

JavaScript dialogs such as alert, confirmation, prompt, beforeunload, and file upload dialog can be handled using DialogHandler. You can choose whether a JavaScript dialog should be displayed or not and what the dialog should look like. See example.

Proxy, Basic, Digest, and NTLM authentication

With NetworkDelegate you can handle basic, digest, NTML, and Proxy authentications. Learn more.

Zooming

You can zoom in, zoom out on a web page or set your own zoom level for the currently loaded web page. Zoom level is configured for each domain separately. To make sure that the zoom level for the web page is changed you can use ZoomListener. You can choose whether a JavaScript dialog should be displayed or not and what the dialog should look like. See example.

Accurate Web Display

The component displays images generated by Chromium engine. Because of this web pages will look exactly as in Google Chrome.

Cookies

Using the CookieStorage object you can receive all the cookies including secure and HTTP-only ones, delete all the cookies or a specific one, create and register new cookies. See example.

Bidirectional JavaScript-Java Bridge

You can execute JavaScript code on the loaded web page and return the result of the execution to the Java side. You can work with JavaScript objects directly from Java. You can inject Java objects into JavaScript and work with Java objects from JavaScript. See example.

Custom Context Menu

ContextMenuHandler allows you to handle the situation when context menu should be displayed. You can build your own Swing context menu, using different useful information from ContextMenuParams, such as context menu location, selected text, link URL, link text, HTML element media type etc. See example.

HTML to Image

JxBrowser allows getting image representation of the loaded web page including the hidden scrollable area. The image can be saved in PNG, JPEG and other graphic formats. See example.

Console Listener

Using ConsoleListener you can listen to console message events including JavaScript errors. See example.

Load Handler

The LoadHandler allows you to handle navigation to any URL address and cancel it when it's necessary. See example.

Saving a Web Page

Browser.saveWebPage() allows you to save the loaded web page as a set of files. See example.

Web Standards

JxBrowser supports all the modern web standards including HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript. In general JxBrowser supports the same web standards as Google Chrome.

Proxy Settings

You can configure each Browser instance to use its own proxy settings. Various configurations are supported: auto detect proxy, manual proxy configuration for HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, SOCKS protocols, direct proxy, proxy auto configuration files. See example.

Java Web Start and Java Applet

You can use JxBrowser library in Java applications that are deployed via Java Web Start or Java Applet. Read more in the Knowledge Base.

Pop-ups

All pop-up windows can be handled with PopupHandler. It is you who decides whether a pop-up window should be displayed or not and how exactly you want it to be displayed (e.g. in a separate window, in your application tab etc.). See examples.

User-agent

With JxBrowser you can set your own user-agent for all Browser instances. See example.

File Download and Upload

DownloadHandler allows you to handle file downloads and control whether a file should be downloaded or not. You can also receive notifications about download progress, speed, completion percentage, received bytes etc. See example.

When a user clicks the file upload INPUT element on a web page, the DialogHandler.onFileChooser() method will be invoked. Using this method you can display your own file chooser dialog where a user can select a file to upload.

Keyboard and Mouse Events Filter

You can filter all keyboard and mouse events before they are passed to the Chromium engine. See example.
