If you can provide the Netbeans config files I can put them into svn.

So far it is a manual process to do the Application Bundle.
Yes, I created it using Jar Bundler initially. I then change the jars 
manually each time I rebuild.
I have checked into bibledesktop/etc/installer/macosx the Info.plist
I think the simplest way to do it right now is to install the 
application and use it as the starting point.
If you want to add a target to bibledesktop's build.xml to construct the 
application bundle, that would be great.
