alphaWorks : Web Browser-Based Interaction with the Eclipse IDE : Overview
This Eclipse plug-in requires an embedded Web server; the one we use is the Jetty Web server. The Web server receives requests from the browser client, interacts with the current Eclipse instance, and sends the response back to the browser client in the form of XUL. The Eclipse SWT widgets are mapped to XUL elements and rendered in the Mozilla browser.
Sounds pretty cool. Real trick is to see if it allows for 2 way interaction.
