Brand New: NetBeans Plug-in Tutorial

A picture speaks a 1000 words. So, here are 2000 words:

Want to learn how to extend the Runtime window so that all your system's properties are displayed (as shown above)? Want to learn how to be able to edit their values? Want to learn how to set things up so that you can add system properties? Want to find out how to put everything together into a shareable plug-in?

Read the brand new NetBeans System Properties Plug-in Tutorial. Feedback is more than welcome -- although, please be aware that the tutorial is a work in progress and the code may not be 100% correct. Still, the tutorial should give you a good idea of some aspects of the Nodes API (it shows you, for example, how to create a property sheet). You can even download the sources of the plug-in and play around with it (again, please realize that the code is not necessarily 100% correct yet).
