4.2.  XUL Applications

XUL applications are application built on top of the Mozilla Core reusing Mozilla's XPCOM component technology, the Rhino Javascript Engine and Geck as the GUI rendering engine.

Firefox and Thunderbird for example are also XUL applications.

Creating your own XUL application is very simple : A simple XUL application consists of a bunch of XUL and Javascript files and a simple configuration file.

The next question should be : How do i run a XUL application ? Thanks to guys at Mozilla there exists an relatively new application called XULRunner. XULRunner acts as the runtime engine for XUL applications;

EclipseXUL supports development of XULRunner based applications by providing a special XULRunner Nature, Perspective, Builder, Wizards and so on.
