The support for the Navigator ain't bad either, especially considering I didn't do any coding at all to get all this:

    I'm also very interested in getting code completion with a schema in netbeans to work, but perhaps without creating a module.

    The link in you're post to java.net seems to be broken.

    No, it's not broken. Just refresh the browser a few times and you'll see the sample. But you're trying to do something completely different, no idea what, but not creating a module doesn't make any sense in this context.
