Re: [JAVAHELP] JavaHelp on Java Web Start - anyone deploying?

I've been deploying JavaHelp (1.1, 1.2 and 1.3, I think I tested 2.0 also)
for at least a year using Web Start. Just deploy the jhall.jar file and
you should be okay (make sure all the references to help information is via
jar reference, not file path, and include the help inside the jar file for
your application).

Have fun! - Bob

Hi world,

In my latest project I'm developing JavaHelp for a Java application which
is deployed with Java Web Start.
I'm having trouble calling the help from the application. Is there anyone
else on this planet who's implementing this? If so, I'd like to hear from
you.

Hi John,

at http://www.lightdev.com/page3.htm you can find the web started version of
application SimplyHTML. It includes a JavaHelp help set and both the
application and the help set are distributed through Java Web Start.

The help set documents how to deploy Java Help help sets along with the
application. A PDF version of the help set can be found at
http://www.lightdev.com/doc/shtm/rel/Help.pdf . Chapter 'Inside
SimplyHTML' -> 'Spotlights' -> 'Java Web Start' discusses your issue.

Hope that helps
Ulrich
