Projects / javaXUL


javaXUL provides a simple to use XUL implementation, including CSS and JavaScript capabilities, for use in Java projects. Some uses include the embedding of an XUL stack in a Java browser and using XUL as a UI language in Java applications, including the ability to communicate with Java. It is not intended to compete with much more complete RIA offerings such as Flash, Silverlight, or javaFX. Instead it tries to leverage the expressivity of XUL in the Java development area. Compatibility with Mozilla XUL (such as the Firefox implementation) is a goal.
