Java EE 5 and GlassFish clients as NetBeans modules

I’ve previously mentioned that my favorite feature in Java EE 5 was the resource injection in the ACC (Application Client Container). Not really because it’s very flexible (it’s not as much as I’d like it to be), but because it opens up new opportunities and great use-cases for the ACC (which I haven’t seen a lot of people using before).

What if you took that to the next level and made the client be a NetBeans Modules (running in a Rich client or as an extension to the IDE)? There’s been some talk, code writing, and bug fixing for a little while on this and this technical article is a very nice walk through.
