rdkbrowser2 is the browser application based on WPE, it is integrated with following components which enables it with new features compared with legacy rdkbrowser:

  • injectedBundle : Provides integration Layer for Service manager and Player inside WPE, adds ability to send messages between JavaScript & other application.
  • pxcore-libnode : pxcore - Provides a lightweight Frame-buffer library, pxscene - 2D scene graph API library.
  • wpe-webkit : WebKit porting which is used with Wayland.
  • rdk-logger : Provides console and file level message logging feature to RDK component.
  • westeros : Wayland compositor library that allows applications to create their own Wayland displays, which allows nesting and embedding of third party application

Note: Currently a working injectedbundle is not available with CMF release hence servicemanager functionality such as native support for communicating with other RDK components is disabled for community released version of rdkbrowser2.
