    Creating a Mozilla Extension
    A Mozilla extension is an installable enhancement to the Mozilla browser that provides additional functionality (for example Linky, which adds an item to the context menu for opening multiple links in a document or selection). This tutorial walks you through the process of building a Mozilla extension that adds an icon to Mozilla's status bar showing the current status of the Mozilla source code (i.e. whether or not the latest version of the code is compiling successfully and passing tests). The extension will access Tinderbox, mozilla.org's webtool for tracking source code status, to get the status of the code.

    Embedding Mozilla in a Java Application using JavaXPCOM
    XULRunner ships with the JavaXPCOM component, which allows Java code to interact with XPCOM objects. As you will see in this article, working with XPCOM objects in Java is not that much different than doing so in C++.

    How to Write and Land Nanojit Patches
    Adobe and Mozilla share a copy of Nanojit. This means that landing nanojit patches is a bit complicated, but experience has taught us that this is much better than having separate versions of nanojit.

    New Skin Notes
    Devmo has a new skin that is ready for testing. If you go to your user preferences, you can change the skin to "Devmo". This is currently just a preview, but we would appreciate help with testing.
    Priority Content
    Update: I've removed documents from this list that have been migrated into the wiki. The list of completed documents is available through the DevEdge page.
    Prism
    Prism is a simple XULRunner-based browser that hosts web applications without the normal web browser user interface. Prism is based on a concept called Site-Specific Browsers (SSB). An SSB is designed to work exclusively with a single web application. It doesn’t have the menus, toolbars and other accoutrements of a traditional web browser. An SSB also offers tighter integration with the operating system and desktop than a typical web application running through a web browser. Applications running in an SSB are therefore able to benefit from many of the advantages of the desktop and of the web at the same time.
