google oauth from swing

hello,
the process of oauth with Google docs API requires a servlet server so that the Google could post access token into your defined callback url.
doing this work inside a web server like tomcat is trivial. But what i need is to do same oauth from a swing application.
is there some existing swing oauth library that facilitates this work?

I suppose i need an embedded browser and also an embedded servlet container in my swing app to do this work. can you show me how i can embbed both a servlet container and web browser so i can perform the oauth process? probably something like the GWT Host mode server in early versions of GWT. i would like something like the GWT embeded jetty and browser used for GWT Hosted mode. or maybe some other swing oauth library.

thanks.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
