JDIC Just Works

While I do a lot of J2EE work which is web enabled I love to tinker with desktop applications. I'm working on a personal project and wanted to embed a web browser into a Java application. I know of course how to do this in .NET however I prefer the cross platform capabilities in Java.

This tasty nugget JDIC was just what I was looking for. While I was interested in only using the web browser to start there are more uses for this than that. With Linux closing in on Windows for the server market share applications that are OS independent are growing in popularity. JDIC I believe will help more developers write SE applications for any OS.
