Re: [platform-swt-dev] Accessing the DOM of a SWT Browser

my problem is to have a JTree to display the DOMTree, and right-click
menus to add/remove/rename DOM nodes.
as far as i understand, the only values you can get from a javascript
call are basic types (Strings, boolean, etc).
I could create a javascript function that returns a textual
representation of the full DOM tree.
Then I create a TreeModel by parsing this textual  representation and
create TreeNodes accordingly.

But when the user is right-clicks a tree element, I have no way to
reference the corresponding DOM node in the browser.

So I probably can hack a display feature, but not an update feature.

Any opinion about that?
