Description Jesse Costello-Good 2006-08-18 16:46:25 PDT
An umbrella bug for other bugs affecting the Safari port of TIBCO(R) General Interface, a leading AJAX development platform.
Comment 1 David Kilzer (:ddkilzer) 2009-07-28 13:15:44 PDT
Are the above dependent bugs the only ones left before TIBCO will work with WebKit browsers?

Are there any workarounds for some of the issues that may be applied in the meantime?
Comment 2 Jesse Costello-Good 2009-07-28 15:29:17 PDT
So actually we are already shipping a version of General Interface that we support (with known quirks) on Safari and Chrome. The remaining open bugs fall into several categories:

GI provides a browser-independent wrapping API that fails on WebKit due to bug:
8291 8342 12307 13075 14833

GI could provide a better developer experience on WebKit if bug were fixed:
8519

Implemented WebKit specific workaround in GI code:
9063 11646 12339 13057 14831 14835 15631

Removed/deprecated functionality in GI (for all supported browsers) because of lack of progress/bugginess:

All remaining related bugs are XML or XML DOM, changing component accordingly.

Back in 2009, TIBCO donated General Interface (GI) to Dojo:

Not sure if there is anything left to do here or not.
