hello, i am using javascript inside java, that is i have a swt browser and i just use browser.execute ("<javascript code>"); i have this problem though, i have this string in java which i want to pass to my javascript string to be executed in browser.execute ("<javascript code>"), how do i do this? for example i have:

void main () {
Browser browser;
String x = "hello";

String commandToRun = "document.write ('hello');\r\n";
browser.execute (commandToRun);

what if i want my commandToRun be equal to "document.write (x)" but still, x would be a String holding the value "hello"? how do i insert my java String into my javascript? thanks!!!

place script tags around the code you want to execute

Are you asking how to append to a string with Java or placing the Java String into a JavaScript string?

I agree. Here's the link:
