Subject Re: Embedding Android activity into WebView, is it possible?
Date Tue, 08 Sep 2015 20:30:58 GMT
It is possible, like all things, but considered not worth the effort.
Doing this would require reverse-engineering the webview, and becoming
completely tied to it's current implementation.  and Android could break it
at anytime, since there are no published apis.
If you would like to experiment, and go and do this, please do, we would
love to hear how it went. Otherwise, please accept the answers you have
been given and move on.

Cheers,
  Jesse
