Reply to: Calling Java classes from XMetaLJanuary 12, 2010 at 11:44 pm
From the XMetaL Author side you can use XMetaL Author's APIs to navigate to an HTML page in the Resource Manager (ResourceManager.Assets.WebBrowser), or embed IE in a new tab (ResourceManager.AddTab()) and then use IE's native Navigate() method to open an HTML page (effectively the same result but on a different tab than the Assets tab).
I have not actually tried to do these things so I'm not sure how difficult it would be to actually implement this or that it could really work. However, perhaps others reading this forum have and can help out.
The following projects may also help (keeping in mind that XMetaL Author is a COM server):
“The goal of the project is to provide a better integration of Java and COM. “
“Implementation of DCOM wire protocol (MSRPC) to enable development of Pure Bi-Directional, Non-Native Java applications which can interoperate with any COM component. The implementation is itself purely in Java and does not use JNI to provide COM access.”
