Integrate the World Cup in NetBeans IDE

Geertjan Wielenga

Chuk, who brought Star Office into NetBeans IDE (see my previous blog entry for details), now brings you... the world cup! There's a brand new "Worldcup Toolbar". From the first drop-down, select the country in which you're interested (which, logically speaking, considering objectively their clear excellence in all aspects of the game, especially if they're called "Robben", could only be the Netherlands):

Then, the next drop-down gives you titles for articles that relate to the country that you selected:

And then, when you click the title, the browser opens and displays the requested article, from http://fifaworldcup.yahoo.com.

Excellent module, right? I'd love to create a new tutorial around this module. Chuk, please give me the sources and I'll put together the tutorial!

    Chuk, thanks for the info.

    any, thanks for the compliment. I'm hoping to have a tutorial on this module soon (at least, before the end of the world cup...)
