Embedding IDEA

Hi,

Just wondering about the feasibility of embedding some future version IDEA into an application. For example, the company I work for makes application generation software for end users (no coding), although we'd like to offer an API with it. The Swing application we use to design such applications would be very happy to host a Java code editor, but it seems a bit silly to roll our own...

How feasible is it, for example to have a source code view and file layout (but cut-down say, without many of the more advanced refactorings)?

Not that IDEA wouldn't be awesome, but something like JEdit might be
more in line with what you're looking for.
