Grumpy Swing days

Swing is nice. Swing is well designed and natural.
Other components are not!
I am fighting with some native browser code. I have to embed a web browser into a Swing application. I have tried jdic and DJ Native Swing. They work quite well in standalone apps. but, as there is always a but, my application is JNLP launched and the display is on a JInternalFrame. The first issue is solvable. The second - not so easily as JInternalFrame seems not to behave with heavyweight components.
The only solution is to use a full blown swing HTML renderer(maybe lobo)

Back to work!
