What is the differnce between the metods in HelpBroker
setDisplayed and setViewDisplayed?

The problem I am trying solve is when we send show help request from one Java application to another application (i.e. 2 different VM).
Both the applications are Swing based and the second application brings up the Java Help window
If the 2nd application is minimized (iconified) the Jhelp is not comming to front . The second application is calling setDisplayed(true), when it receives a request to show help. This trick work (i.e. Java Help window comes to front etc )when the 2nd application has focus.

I am thinking setViewDisplayed will help ?
