NetBeans module sample, specifically for 6.0. Shows how to create a palette via MIME-type registration. This is a new feature in NetBeans IDE 6.0, allowing you to create a palette in one module for an editor defined in another module. Here, the module provides a palette for Java source files.
Also see this blog entry, which shows an interesting extension to this sample, for allowing your users to create their own code snippets in your palette from code in the editor.
