Execution environment for javafx.scene.web

I am working on the technology representing the information in form
which adjusted to the perception of blind people. It is just as
an addition to usual screen readers.
For a long time there was a rather big problem, it is a web browsing. My
environment is implemented in Java but I was unable to get any web
browser features.Any web surfing activity was possible only if you are
using a fully functional browser, like Firefox, Chrome, etc.
>From time to time I looked for any browser implementations in Java but
everything what I got never looked interesting. The picture totally
changed when I found javafx.scene.web. At a glance it looks like exactly
what I need!
The key feature which looks nice to me is a splitting a visualization and
a background engine. I need exactly the engine which manages DOM, can
care about graphical representation. The description for WebEngine class
says that it suits completely.
OK, but I would like to ensure that JavaFX itself suits as well. Meaning, may I
use WebEngine class without creating _*graphical*_ application? In other
words, what should the execution environment for WebEngine be?
There are two questions I would like to understand:
1. Should I create a full graphical application in JavaFX traditions to
be able to use WebEngine? My application uses a speech feedback as a
main way to bring information to users. If it is required that I should
have a complete graphical scene for using WebEngine it would be bad news
2. Do I understand correctly that JavaFX applications are able to be
launched just in Java Virtual Machine? Meaning, they do not need a
complete web browser, right? I found that javafx.scene.web using
webkit and it is OK. I am asking that the user shouldn't need opening a web
browser window and run JavaFX application in it, yes?
Help me please! If these questions would be OK I would be able to
significantly improve my environment!
Thank you in advance! :))
