JxBrowser 7.21

JxBrowser 7.21 has been released! We’ve extended API with new features, added important fixes and improvements.

DOM image raw bytes

Find all the images on a web page or a specific image and access its raw bytes using the new com.teamdev.jxbrowser.dom.ImageElement interface:

document.findElementById("image").ifPresent(element -> {
    if (element instanceof ImageElement) {
        ImageElement image = (ImageElement) element;
        Bitmap bitmap = image.contents();
        Size size = bitmap.size();
        byte[] pixels = bitmap.pixels();

It’s useful if you need to extract the images from a web page and store them on a local file system, RAM, or database.

DOM CustomEvent detail

Listen to the custom DOM events and access their payload:

// Listen to the events of the given custom event type.
element.addEventListener(EventType.of("MyEvent"), event -> {
    // The MyEvent event has been received.
    if (event instanceof CustomEvent) {
        CustomEvent customEvent = (CustomEvent) event;
        JsObject payload = customEvent.detail();
}, false);

Quality enhancements

  • The upload POST data was corrupted because of some extra bytes.
  • Drop data from dataTransfer was lost on macOS.
  • Subfolders were treated as files when selecting a folder in the OpenFolder callback.
  • BrowserView was blank and threw “Failed to get native widget ID” exception in JavaFX.
  • BrowserView was blank and threw “Failed to detect the GTK version” exception in SWT in Linux.
  • Passing null or undefined from JavaScript to Java resulted in IllegalArgumentException.
  • Network events and callbacks didn’t contain sec-ch-ua, sec-ch-ua-mobile, and sec-ch-ua-platform headers when a web page was loaded via Navigation.loadUrl().
  • Chromium unexpectedly released Browser instance when reaching the memory limit. This is unwanted behavior for the library, and we disabled it.
