We are often asked how our clients use WebRenderer in their projects. There
are thousands of different use cases our ingenious clients have come up with
that have both delighted and surprised us. WebRenderer is more than just an
embeddable Java Swing browser. WebRenderer also gives you, the developer,
complete access and control of the browser.
We thought we would put together an example that demonstrates some of the
in-browser functionality. In this example we use WebRenderer Swing Edition to
create a special “Zoom” effect when a click action is selected, like so:
The Zoom Browser demonstrates content being displayed on top of the Java
browser in a glass pane. This content is an image taken from the browser
itself and modified to give a scaled view. Click with the mouse scroll wheel
to show. Scroll with the wheel, navigate to a new page or press ESC to remove

WebRenderer is one of those SDKs that can appear overwhelming on first look.
For this reason we always shipped a “bare bones” Test Browser
(TestBrowser.java) with the product. The Test Browser has at times baffled
people due to it’s lack of features. The Test Browser was
“featureless” by design as we wanted to keep the starter example code as
compact as possible so that developers could embed WebRenderer in just a few
lines of code. This is important as we never wanted the learning curve and
integration to be an overwhelming process.
With that being said, for some time now our W... (more)
From time to time WebRenderer is deployed within an Applet. Applets provide a
convenient mechanism for launching client applications within the browser.
WebRenderer however requires different libraries based on the target platform
(Windows, Linux, OS X, Solaris) and architecture (32/64 bit). Traditionally
to run an Applet, you needed to specify all of the libraries that are
required, and they will all be downloaded. If you intend for the Applet to
run on multiple platforms, then traditional Applet deployment means that all
the libraries for the supported platforms are required w... (more)
Mouse gestures are one of those great "add-ons" that enhance browser
usability. For those that are not familiar with mouse gestures, they are a
browser navigational aid that works via mouse movements. Mouse gestures have
been around for some time now and we thought it would be good to show how to
implement mouse gestures in WebRenderer.
This demonstration application not only aids in browser navigation, but also
shows how to draw on top of the WebRenderer browser. To enact a mouse gesture
one holds down the right mouse button and moves the mouse in a direction or
pattern and the... (more)
JadeLiquid is proud to announce the addition of native Selenium support in
LiquidTest, the Web Application Testing tool. LiquidTest supports the
Selenium specification outside the core Selenium implementation. With this
clean-room Selenium implementation LiquidTest now provides a robust Recording
and Replay engine for Selenium users.
"Selenium is an incredibly popular tool with a great user community. What we
aimed to do was develop a clean-room Selenium implementation within
LiquidTest that uses the core LiquidTest technology to greatly improve the
test Recording and Creation c... (more)
