RaptorCanvas Project Picked Up By Sun
Wednesday July 7th, 1999
Edward J. Burns of Sun has some good news on the RaptorCanvas project (embedding Gecko in Java).
Edward writes, "On April 25th, it was reported here that Kirk Baker successfully embedded the raptor layout system into a Java Application and called it RaptorCanvas. Today, I am happy to report that Kirk and Ian are collaborating with a team in the Java Software organization from Sun Microsystems to contribute this work to mozilla.org. The team at Sun is a part of the Netscape-Sun alliance and is working on the RaptorCanvas project and other projects aimed at more smoothly integrating the Java platform with mozilla. At present, no schedule information is available, but Sun and Netscape are in talks to explore exactly how and where to make the work available. The current plan is to make the core RaptorCanvas code available under the NPL."

Now mozilla can be used as an activeX control and as part of a java app. That makes it much more interesting for developers.
As far as cross-platform is concerned-mozilla will be on many platforms including os/2, BeOS and maybe even openVMS. I just wonder what happened to the DOSzilla project...
