Little Snitch accept/deny connection dialog

I recently installed Little Snitch software on my Mac that notifies me of all
outgoing IP connections.  Today I noticed in NetBeans, if I click the cursor
into position on a method (e.g. props.getProperty()) while NetBean's Javadoc
window is open, the Javadoc window says "Loading Javadoc…" and then Little
Snitch reports that Netbeans wants to contact rideshop.zappos.com on port 80. 
Whether or not I deny/accept the request, the Javadoc screen then updates with
"...Javadoc documentation for this item does not exist…" error template, but
not until after I make an accept/deny choice, so there's definitely some
connection.  FYI, if I select "Show Javadoc" from the context menu, then an
Oracle javadoc web page opens to the javadoc, with no attempt to contact
Zappos.

So far this has only happened in NetBeans javadoc, and not in any other
circumstances on my computer, so I don't think it's likely that my computer 
has
been hacked.  Any ideas why this online shoe/clothing store is being contacted
by the IDE?

See the attached image for the Little Snitch info dialog.
