Canoo has published an IDE integration plug-in for IntelliJ IDEA and UltraLightClient (http://www.canoo.com/ulc/). The IDE integration plug-in simplifies Rich Internet Application (RIA) development with UltraLightClient (ULC) in IntelliJ's development environment. The free plug-in provides Run/Debug integration for ULC applications and a ULC library wizard.

Building Rich Internet Applications in Java with ULC
UltraLightClient is a library to build Rich Internet Applications (RIA) in Java. Using this standard Java library, developers achieve unprecedented productivity in providing rich, responsive graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for enterprise web applications within J2EE and J2SE infrastructures. UltraLightClient builds on available developer know-how by following the Swing API, yet shields the developer from the complexities of client/server code distribution by taking care of the code split and optimizing communication. Application releases are deployed on the server only. The user interface is handled by an application-independent Java presentation engine distributed as an applet to a browser, to Eclipse RCP, or via Java Web Start. See Key Differentiators (http://www.canoo.com/ulc/home/keydifferentiators.html) to find out how ULC compares with other technologies.
