Blogging in NetBeans on NetBeans

Thanks to the JDIC's embedded native browser, I can now blog inside the IDE. That's pretty cool, I think. Here, for example, is what this blog entry looks like inside the IDE (click to enlarge):

Rich Unger created this implementation of the JDIC's embedded native browser. Michal Mocnak describes something very similar in his blog. If you're interested in a tutorial that describes how to embed the JDIC native browser in the IDE, please leave a message at the end of this blog (or write me at geertjan.wielenga@sun.com).

By the way, notice that my toolbar contains Ludo's Google toolbar... not bad, huh. I can now do google searches inside the IDE and display the results inside the IDE!

    I would very much like to hear how you got this working. I attempted the instructions in Michal Mocnak's blog, but it got hung up with a missing dependancy for JDIC. I tried, to no avail, to find a way to add an external library dependancy.
    The suggestion that I received from the blog (note this is only a suggestion, it's never actually mentioned) is that I should just dump the JAR in my JDK's installation to get it added to the default classpath automatically. An idea, I must say, I find... un-appealing. Surely the gurus at Sun or in the Netbeans community have dealt with this problem before and have an easy solution, no?
    Nice blog BTW, it's being added to my daily "to read" list. :)
