A pre-configured Eclipse project is provided to run a few of them. For users of other IDEs, make sure the src/java and resources directories under the about, docbook, svg, and browser directories are available on the build path. samples/src and splash should also be in the build path. flying-saucer-core, flying-saucer-pdf, and flying-saucer-swt must also be on the build path as well as the an SWT JAR for your OS. The Eclipse config files as committed with flying-saucer-swt use a Linux SWT JAR. You will need to update if using another OS. org.xhtmlrenderer.demo.browser.BrowserStartup will start the browser demo. Some good entry points (classes) are: org.xhtmlrenderer.simple.XHTMLPanel org.xhtmlrenderer.simple.PDFRenderer org.xhtmlrenderer.simple.ImageRenderer
