Description Vlad 2010-09-02 15:23:41 PDT
Make it possible to configure QtWebKit to use the V8 JavaScript engine instead of JavaScriptCore. At first, this would be useful for performance benchmarking and quality assurance.

Changing the order of blocking/depends. The sub-tasks block this task. We can close this bug when the sub-bugs are fixed :)

One idea for simplifying the build system changes a bit would be to replace the contains(QTJAVASCRIPTENGINE, V8) { ... } bits with a CONFIG, i.e. do

CONFIG += v8 at some point and then later on the test is a bit simpler:

v8 {
}
Comment 3 Vlad 2010-09-03 10:12:00 PDT
Idealy js engine value should be passed here... something like

perl WebKitTools\Scripts\build-webkit --qt --symbian --v8

not sure if it translates into CONFIG... If yes, I agree it is simplest way. Another dependency for v8 is public header path...

WebKit trunk builds with V8 now, when --qt --v8 is passed to build-webkit and the Qt build is the one that contains the experimental port of QtScript to V8.
