Thanks to my colleague's persistent encouragement, I've posted a small Netbeans module to netbeans.org's plugin portal, below.
This module enables a new "Blu-ray Disc Java Project" type under the New Project selection. Underneath the cover, it takes a form of a sample project, where there is a helloworld Xlet, nearly emply BDMV file structure, bdjo and security tools from our hdcookbook repository, and a build script. One can build a disc image with the xlet being marked as autostart by invoking "build", and if WinDVD is installed in your system, run the disc image with a "run" command from the NB as well.
During the installation, the module asks for the location of the BD-J stub classes to compile xlets against.
It's a primitive module, but it has been pretty handy item for me to come up with some quick test cases for BD-J, by starting a new project and modifying the HelloWorld xlet to use the API in question. I hope it can be useful to some other people out there.
