Java CEF in a Java Project on Mac OSX

Postby joxrox » Thu May 10, 2018 8:36 am

Hi JCEF Forum!

I am using Java CEF in a Windows Java project and now I have the need for a Mac OSX version. On Windows, I have a compiled binary distribution set in the Djava.library.path option and Java JAR libraries in the class-path and it has been working wonderfully.

So I borrowed a friend's Mac and compiled JCEF for Mac OSX using the latest version. I could run the example JCEF application (jcef_app.app) that gets created after making the distrobution, however, I have been unable to figure out how to implement it into my existing project. I have read here (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/26991843/how-can-i-create-java-project-using-java-chromium-embedded-framework-in-mac-os-x) that Mac OSX applications must follow a specific app bundle structure following his steps did not seem to work.

I have tried every single suggestion that I could find online, but since it has been a month since last trying and now I do not have the Mac, I can't remember exactly all the errors that I've seen. Just to name a few things I've tried:
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=13099
viewtopic.php?f=17&t=14079
https://bitbucket.org/chromiumembedded/ ... -icudtldat

So my question is, before I go and borrow his Mac again, where should my Java project's dependencies go inside the app bundle, where should the project Jar go, where should the JCEF jars go (the ones inside the Java folder in the example application), how do I tell my project where to find the required JCEF files, and how can I build this into a Netbeans project (if possible).

Sorry if this is a bit vague; as I said, it has been a month and I forgot a lot of details. If necessary, I can get the Mac back soon after finals week is over.

Thanks in advance,
Joe

Hi,

Can you make your binary build for OS X available online?

I have an app that uses JCEF on Windows and need to port it to Mac, but I have problems building the JCEF binary on latest macOS. If I get a binary for Mac, I will try to merge it with my code and -if that works- I might be able to help you use it with your project.

Regards,
Rodolfo

Thanks for the files. I have them now.

Initial attempts to make the test app work failed. It crashed and I was asked to share the problem with Apple.

I'll try to run the binaries in my project. Will let you know how it goes.

Unfortunately, I couldn't make your JCEF build work on my Mac.

I gave up and decided to use electron.js to build the wrapper for my JavaScript app. It was easy to build and worked as expected in no time.

Thanks,
Rodolfo

Electron is a good choice if you don't actually need any Java (or other native) code in your app.
