[Biojava-l] Sun One Studio+Biojava

Sun One Studio is built on NetBeans, which is what I use to develop bits
of BioJava with, so I think what works for me should work for you. Here

If you are working with BioJava in apps you are developing yourself, you
need to set up BioJava as a library in NetBeans. Do this by going to the
Library Manager (Tools menu), creating a new library called BioJava,
then using the buttons provided to locate and add the biojava-1.4.jar
file to the library. You can then associate this library with any
project you are working on by right-clicking on that project, choosing
Properties, then click on Libraries in the tree on the left of the
window that appears and use this to add the BioJava library.

If you are intending to develop BioJava itself, you need to check out
the entire biojava-live project from CVS. You can then set up
development in NetBeans by creating a "new project from existing Ant
script", and telling it where the build.xml file can be found within the
BioJava project. It'll do the rest for you. 

Hope this helps.
