WebCore is the (C++) core of WebKit (Source/WebCore in the SVN svn.webkit.org/repository/webkit/trunk). It has code for : DOM tree, HTML/XML/CSS parsing, SVG/MathML/HTML rendering ... It does the actual rendering but The Webkit/ subdirectories contains the different "ports", bindings for languages/APIs/toolits/systems (blackberry, chromium, GTK, Mac/Cocoa, Qt, wx).

@dude: ActionScript is a dialect of ECMAScript (just like JavaScript is). What's more, few years ago, it was expected to be used in Mozilla applications as its EcmaScript engine.

AFAI understand, you have core Webkit which is unconnected from any kind of UI/system layer. Then you have different bindings/ports for different UI libs/systems: Apple Cocoa, Qt, GTK …

comment Should I add an “Abstract” prefix to my abstract classes?
It doesn't violate DRY principle IMO. In the definition of the class there is a slight redundancy. But the name of the class is (usually) mostly used at other places where the "abstract" keyword doesn't not appear. And "interface Foo implements Foo" doesn't work anyway.

comment Java - using single class or multiple class for each type?
What are the nodes supposed to be/do? Can the type of a node change at runtime (an instance cannot change its class at runtime in Java)?

comment Convince someone that an app cannot be done
Have a look at basic Computer Vision courses. It works the same as human vision, you cannot find the size (or equivalently depth) of a given object unless you add a second camera (and have calibration for the pair of camera). If you do not have this, you can only rebuild the world up to a scale factor: you could be able to figure out the relative size of objects, but to be able to get absolute sizes, you need to know some reference size from the scene.

I don't see how this can be "not constructive" and "this question will likely solicit opinion".

Jarrod Roberson: if the class was not final you could create mutable Strings using inheritance.
