Hi Shin,

So if you've done the embedding using the createSystemChild() API (from
XSystemChildFactory interface), it should work similar way for OSX as it
does for Windows; just instead of providing it with window handle, you
should provide it with (NSView*) pointer.

Regarding how to do OSX development in general - I don't develop on OSX
myself, so unfortunately cannot help you :-(  But hopefully a bit of
googling will get you somewhere; or maybe somebody in the list will

Either way - hope that you'll achieve what you need!

All the best,
