WebCream Limitations

  • Rendered HTML is subject to limitations of DHTML
  • Custom Swing components that do not extend standard Swing components require writing custom renderers
  • Applications that use complicated multithreaded GUI updates may not function as expected without modifications. In this case, modifications should be very minor. Follow this link for details on multithreading
  • Applications relying heavily on the GUI events may not function as expected. Not all GUI events are emulated for performance reasons (e.g. application will never receive MouseMove events)
