eSWT and Netbeans

Nokia have now released a eSWT plugin for Nokia S60 SDK 3rd Edition FP2 beta.

I thought, will I be able to use my favorite JavaME development tool, Netbeans 5.5.1, for develop a eSWT Midlet?
The short answer is: Yes it works, thanks to the Nokia SDK (very nice Nokia!!)

HowTo get started with eSWT development with Midlets?
  1. Read: eSWT for S60, First Contact - Gorkem Ercan from Nokia
  2. Read: How to use eSWT with Midlets.
  3. Install Nokia S60 SDK 3rd Edition FP2 beta
  4. Install eSWT plugin
  5. Install Netbeans 5.5.1 and Netbeans Mobility Pack and add the Nokia SDK (In the menu "Tools/Java platform manager", choose "Add platform" and "Java Micro Edition platform Emulator")
I used the example code from How to use eSWT with Midlets and it works with Netbeans!

But Netbeans don't support eSWT, it works because of the Nokia SDK, I wondering if there is any plans for eSWT support in Netbeans?
