Installing the visual designer should be as easy as installing the Eclipse plugin. The XULRunner dependency must be dropped. Preferrably we should bundle an embedded WebKit with the plugin.

Some more information here: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=325995 :

"It would be part of the SWT bundle, which is included in both RCP and Platform
(IDE). Note that Eclipse won't be distributing Webkit itself - it will just
have code to connect to a Webkit that is already installed on the user's
machine."

This would at least concern the SWT bundle, not sure if IDE might also include a copy of WebKit or not.

JavaFX 2.0 WebView could be a solution aswell:

IMHO this is a very important task. Vaadin Editor keeps complaining about the missing XulRunner on my machine, even though I have it installed and registered. This error message is shown every time I open a Composite in the editor - pretty annoying.

Perhaps the plug-in should not try to force the use of XULRunner on 64-bit Windows as there is no official 64-bit Windows build of XULRunner. To be able to change this change, it should be tested that the system default browser (IE) works properly on those systems.

See also https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=325995 (WebKit support) - although it requires a separately installed WebKit or recent Safari on the computer and as such does not resolve the issue completely.
