Overview

This code snippet demonstrates how to use eSWT's Browser class in Java ME. The Browser class instance implements the browser user interface metaphor and it allows the user to visualize and navigate through HTML documents. This example has also "Back", "Forward" and "Open URL" Commands for navigating to previous or next session history items and for opening desired html page. The MIDlet uses MobileShell, because it has a possibility to change the status pane size. The following section contains the complete code for compiling and running the example application.

Postconditions

When a BrowserMIDlet is opened, a browser window is shown on the screen. The browser will open the following URL: http://forumnokia.mobi.
