Eclipse in a NetBeans Tutorial?

Then, you will be told how to import the EMF-related OSGi bundles into a new NetBeans Platform application. As a next step, you will create a new module and copy the classes generated by Eclipse (e.g., the Supplier and Product classes, together with their supporting classes) into the new module. Finally, you'll create a second module where the suppliers and products will be created and displayed:
That tutorial will, in the end, provide full instructions on a very common need—the need of EMF models to be handled within Swing applications. With NetBeans Platform 6.9, that process is now seamless. It's as easy to import an OSGi bundle as it is to import any other JAR file, while Equinox integration into NetBeans Platform applications ensures that the OSGi framework checks all the dependencies between the bundles when the application starts up. Currently I have all the dependencies correctly set up, the above application now deploys without a single problem message being generated by Equinox. Pretty cool.
