Have look at the basic tutorial
http://platform.netbeans.org/tutorials/nbm-selection-1.html . Such a decoupled master-detail-view is shown there.

I'm trying to loosely couple 2 modules A and B using an interface (we will call interface).

A calls a method (setText) on the interface, B implements the interface.

A is currently using this code to lookup the module that implements the interface.

private interface bob;
bob = Lookup.getDefault().lookup(interface.class)


This works fine except both A and B are topComponents so they are created at startup.  Lookup then returns a new instance of B.  B isn't displaying the new data because the instance of B that is displayed isn't the same as the instance of B that A is sending the data too.

I'm missing something fundimental here.  I want to press the button on A and have "hi" show up in the textfield in B, then make C and display "hi" in some other way.  How do I get A to talk to the displayed instance of B.  AKA I need to lookup the currently created instance of B not create a new one.

Is there a way to register B with lookup?
