Yesterday The
announcement of the collaboration between href="">Sun
and Google has been well
received and talked about. So what about NetBeans and Google? I wanted
to test the new href="">NetBeans
5.0 Beta wizards to
develop  new NetBeans modules, and guess what  I was
able to do in 16 minutes? Well, a Google search Toolbar inside the
NetBeans toolbar... See the result:

style="border: 0px solid ; width: 100px; height: 100px;">

See the new "Google:" entry field in the NetBeans toolbar... If you
enter some text there and press ENTER, a browser is shown with the
result of the search. In the NetBeans explorer, you can see the little
NetBeans module.

IF you want to play with it, you can
download file

NBM (NetBeans Module file) and read the NetBeans documentation to see how to install it in the IDE.

I wonder when the Google toolbar will show NetBeans as a possible download...

PS: Update: href="">Geertjan Wielenga, the NetBeans docs guru just created a tutorial for NetBeans based on this module: href="">check it out
