Working with third party JSF components in JDeveloper (woodstock sample)

Juan just published a nice matrix that show developers who were using the Woodstock set of components how ADF Faces has the components that match their requirements.

One thing I did for this is created a quick demo that shows how you can use JDeveloper to work on existing woodstock based application.
You can use the steps in the beginning to plug any set of JSF components into JDeveloper.
The other thing it shows is how you can use the "Project from WAR file" to simplify the process of creating a JDeveloper project from existing source.

What about the other way around? I realize this might be taboo, but if I wanted to use ADF Faces (or even Trinidad) in NetBeans, what would be necessary? I'll probably answer my own question by saying that a component plugin would need to be developed using NetBeans plugins API, unless there already exists something to allow this.

Shawn, I must admit that I never understood why NetBeans is making it hard for people to pull JSF components to their IDE - why do they need extra work on top of the components jar file - why do I need to develop specific hooks into NetBeans?

Shawn, If you want to use ADF or Trinidad in the Netbeans, the only thing you need is just add the components jar to the project, and just use it. There will be no palette with components, BUT you will get the code completion of the components.
