About threading, progress and the Output Window in the NetBeans Platform

Threads, Progress and the Output Window

How do I run a task in background in a NetBeans Platform based application? How do I show progress to the user? How do I print out stuff into the Output Window?

Those questions had to be answered before I could actually embed a Scheme interpreter in the Scheme IDE (that I'm building on top of the NetBeans Platform).

So after some research I wrote down some notes on how to do it, adding just another entry to the "Cooking with the NetBeans Platform" series.

So I think I'm almost ready to actually embed the interpreter in the IDE, but that'll be another future entry (on the works now, possibly ready by next week).

Enjoy. Happy NetBeans-ing and happy weekend,
