Those bits shouldn't have changed a lot between OOo and LO... but there may have
been changes in the SDK.

I'ld love to answer you that there is the OOEclipse plugin set that works
nicely... but I didn't have much time to invest on it recently to update it and
have it working for the last versions of LibreOffice... And it has no connection
with the SDK samples.

I'll try to take some time to get OOEclipse working ASAP as you're not the first
one requesting it. I'm not sure how Netbeans plugins are up-to-date and I'm not
aware of any other IDE with OOo/LO integration.
