Vim, when run in a terminal is designed to work in a very poor
environment, and there is only one thread of execution. On the other
hand, the netbeans interface has been designed with a GUI in mind (since
it was meant to be used by IDEs) and registers a call-back that is used
to process the received netbeans messages. So, to port the netbeans
interface to Vim in terminal mode is not simple. One would have probably
to setup a hook in the main loop (RealWaitForChar() in os_unix.c), that
is, right in the deep heart of Vim.
