Plugin support







The WebRenderer Server edition only supports plugins that support headless server rendering. Many third-party plugins do not support rendering in a headless server enviornment.

Steps required to enable the plugin:

1. Un-jar the corecomponentsse-xxx.jar
2. add plugin files to the corecomponents/plugins directory
3. JAR the 'corecomponents' directory back-up creating a new version of corecomponentsse-xxx.jar

The plugin will now deploy within WebRenderer Mozilla instance.

Please note; if you have already run WebRenderer then the corecomponentsse-xxx.jar will not extract and run with your plugin, and you therefore have to force WebRenderer to extract these. This can be done by altering the versionxxxx ("xxxx" denotes the version number) and calling the BrowserFactory setCorecomponentsExtractOn method.


1) Alter the versionxxxx filename to mycustomdeploy
2) Call BrowserFactory.setCorecomponentsExtractOn("mycustomdeploy");

The corecomponentsse-xxx.jar will now deploy with your plugin. The corecomponentsse-xxx.jar will only extract if it does not find the versionxxxx file (in the example "mycustomdeploy"), thus preventing performance penalties (a slight delay on start-up) encountered with the extraction process.

Although third party plugins can be used with WebRenderer we cannot make any assurances regarding the quality of third party plugins or the interoperability with WebRenderer.
