Check the Schedule for an overview of all talks during this conference.


KJSEmbed stands apart from other high-level language solutions that KDE has because it is completely written in C++ and has been designed for the goal of embedding into KDE.  These powerful traits make KJSEmbed a very useful for developers looking to add a scripting option to their applications.

KJSEmbed has a few levels to expose an applications API to the scripting environment.  The simplest being exposing the QObject based classes Qt properties, signals and slots.  The most complex is an OpaqueProxy that completely wraps the custom object.

These levels will be explored along with a more detailed look at the API that developers would use to add KJSEmbed to their application and to use it for application automation.
