This chapter introduces the JavaFX embedded browser, a user interface component that provides a web viewer and full browsing functionality through its API.

The embedded browser component is based on WebKitan open source web browser engine. The embedded browser inherits all fields and methods from the Node class, and therefore, it has all its features.

The classes that constitute the embedded browser reside in the javafx.

Figure shows the architecture of the embedded browser and how it relates to other JavaFX classes. The WebEngine class provides basic web page functionality. It supports user interaction such as navigating links and submitting HTML forms, although it does not interact with users directly.


The WebEngine class handles one web page at a time. Two constructors enable you to create a WebEngine object: If you instantiate an empty constructor, the URL can be passed to a WebEngine object through the load method.

User style sheets replace the default styles on the pages rendered in this WebEngine instance with user-defined ones. The WebView class is an extension of the Node class. It encapsulates a WebEngine object, incorporates HTML content into an application’s scene, and provides properties and methods to apply effects and transformations.

The getEngine method called on a WebView object returns a web engine associated with it. Example shows the typical way to create WebView and WebEngine objects in your application.

The PopupFeatures class describes the features of a web pop-up window as defined by the JavaScript specification. When you need to open a new browser window in your application, the instances of this class are passed into pop-up handlers registered on a WebEngine object by using the setCreatePopupHandler method as shown in Example If the method returns the web engine of the same WebView object, the target document is opened in the same browser window.

To open the target document in another window, specify the WebEngine object of another web view. When you need to block the pop-up windows, return the null value.

When working with the WebView component, you should remember that it has the default in-memory cache. It means that any cached content is lost once the application containing the WebView component is closed.

However, developers can implement cache at the application webvifw by means of the java.

From WebKit perspectives, the persistent cache is a property of the network layer similar to connection and cookie handlers. Once some of those are installed, the WebView component uses them in transparent manner.
