This is an example on how to get inout from the Output Window. Just change what's done on the read method (listener implementation) to customize the behavior. Things that come to mind: chat client, text based games, etc...

/*
 * Enable/create the tabs we need for the component
 */
package sample.component;

import com.dreamer.outputhandler.InputMonitor;
import com.dreamer.outputhandler.OutputHandler;
import org.jivesoftware.smack.util.ReaderListener;
import org.openide.modules.ModuleInstall;
import org.openide.windows.WindowManager;

/**
 * Manages a module's lifecycle. Remember that an installer is optional and
 * often not needed at all.
 */
public class Installer extends ModuleInstall implements ReaderListener {

    private final String normal = "Output";

    @Override
    public void restored() {
        WindowManager.getDefault().invokeWhenUIReady(new Runnable() {

            @Override
            public void run() {
                OutputHandler.output(normal, "Welcome! Type something below.");
                //Create a monitor for the tab. This enables input in the tab as well.
                InputMonitor monitor = OutputHandler.createMonitor(normal);
                //Add a listener to be notified.
                monitor.addListener(Installer.this);
            }
        });
    }

    @Override
    public void read(String read) {
        OutputHandler.output(normal, "You typed: " + read);
    }
}

Note: This is feature is available on the Output Handler plugin version 1.2.

Example of using input reader in output window

package sample.component;

import java.awt.EventQueue;
import java.io.BufferedReader;
import java.io.IOException;
import org.openide.util.Exceptions;
import org.openide.util.RequestProcessor;
import org.openide.windows.IOProvider;
import org.openide.windows.InputOutput;
import org.openide.windows.OnShowing;

@OnShowing
public class OutputWindowReaderExample implements Runnable {

    /**
     * Open Output Window and ask for some input.
     */
    public static void requestAnswerExample() throws IOException {
        assert !EventQueue.isDispatchThread();
        InputOutput io = IOProvider.getDefault().getIO("ioName", true);
        io.select();
        io.getOut().println("How are you?");
        BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(io.getIn());
        String answer = br.readLine();
        io.getOut().println("You are " + answer + " today");
        br.close();
        io.getOut().close();
        io.getErr().close();
    }

    /**
     * Call requestAnswerExample from a background thread, after initialization
     * of the user interface.
     */
    @Override
    public void run() {
        RequestProcessor.getDefault().post(new Runnable() {
            @Override
            public void run() {
                try {
                    requestAnswerExample();
                } catch (IOException ex) {
                    Exceptions.printStackTrace(ex);
                }
            }
        });
    }
}

Note: The module that contains this class depends on Window System API (org.openide.windows).
