In my last post, I talked about getting jMaki components to work in NetBeans from a component developer perspective. However, most IDE users are interested in how to build their own domain-specific app. I've created a demo script that uses a Yahoo YUI autocomplete widget to look words up in a dictionary. You can try it yourself because all the instructions are there, including all necessary downloads such as the latest NetBeans 6 M9 preview release. Alternatively if you have access to the JavaOne pavilion, you can ask for a demo at the NetBeans Visual Web booth. Tell 'em I sent you. :-). As I understand it, a pavilion pass is easier to get, though I don't know the details on how to get one.
Below is a screenshot of the app in the IDE.
Please note that the Yahoo component library is a work in progress and may not be product quality. However, it does show some of what is possible given enough resources.
