NetBeans Platform CRUD

One thing I'm meant to be working on is writing a tutorial for creating a CRUD application on the NetBeans Platform. The related issue and interesting documentation relating to this point can be found in the issue:

http://www.netbeans.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=146402

And here's where things are right now:

It is a prototype that uses the Database Explorer API to display information in a NetBeans Explorer View via the Nodes API. It also prints column names to the Output window when a node is double-clicked. Now the column names need to end up in the columns in the Details view. One way in which this might be done is to add the column names to the global Lookup whenever a table name is selected. The global Lookup would then be available to the Details view, which would then display them as the columns of the table. Seems like a NetBeans-centric approach to me. Any advice from anyone out there on this point?

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
