Implementing a feature of Coderanch in Java ?

I see that it detects names of java classes in our post. It adds the link to the java doc "underneath" the class name. I don't know what language or what processing enabled this to happen. But I want to implement it in java.
Any suggestions on how to proceed ?

I guess its like this -

1 - Put Class names into some data structure. Select the right DS for this job !
2 - Take a post and search for class names.
3 - Hyperlink the java doc to the class name.


Of course, it will be difficult to implement and i will get lots of errors. As a beginner, should i go on this (mis?)adventure ?
