I' ve 3 questions about JavaHelp :

Is it possible to use JavaHelp in a Java application to read documents located in a CDROM?
Is it possible to run the research in a selected text?
Is it possible to run the research on PDF files?

Best Regards

Anne

I don't know what you mean by research.

Again I don't know what you mean by research but most likely the answer
is no.

Thank you for your response;
I' m looking for a solution to display HTML documents with a search
engine.(It' s not help documents)
I want to call Acrobat Reader to download a document that has a PDF
version . Is it possible to do that in embedding Java Help System into
a application frame, in calling Acrobat Reader from the application and
in controlling the display inside Java Help view.
Do you think Java Help is a good solution to display documents that not
concern help ?

Yes but you'll need to either create a light weight component to call
the viewer externally or use a PDF viewer as a JEditorKit. In the near
future you'll be able to use the native viewer as the content viewer and
won't have any problems.

As good as anything else.

Thank you.

I have other questions about the default search engine of JavaHelp :
Is it a multi criteria search engine (AND, OR)?
Is it possible to modify the search engine interface to generate query
by selecting words in lists;

No, it's a natural language type of search engine

I'm not sure what you're asking for here. Generally speaking no because
you don't have enough access to the search engine API.

Thank you. Yes, I will not use the default search engine of JavaHelp,
but Lucene search engine that is multi criteria. So, I 've to create the
interface for thedisplay of the query and for the display of results.
