Re: [JAVAHELP] Using databases with JavaHelp

I beg to differ.

I just tested this by taking our swing application and extracting all
the help context into a directory structure outside the jar (and deleted
all the help content in the jar). I added links to google and yahoo and
they came up fine.
I think the servlet thing is doable as long as the generated HTML is
something that the helpengine can handle. External links work fine in
swing.

Doesn't work the Swing side though. I think what you need is something
that will work on both Swing and web based applications. Let me put on
my thinking cap and see what I can come up with.

The swing application is displaying online help in the JEditorPane. Are
you indicating that you're using a servlet for the html file and it's
creating something on the fly. If that's the case then it could work. It
would be a little non traditional but would still work.
