AFAIK the best integration you can achieve is by "embedding" the Swing
components inside a UNO dialog. A rather complex subject to explain in
a mail. You can try this extension (only tested in Linux and Windows

It gets the modality and integration in AOO by executing a Uno AWT
dialog, and by means of some system dependent stuff (wrapped in AOO API,
you don't have to mess with that) it uses a Swing JPanel with other
Swing components inside.

I only tested this on Linux/Windows XP, it may not work in other OSs.
