Using databases with JavaHelp
I've read the JavaHelp 2.0 System User's Guide and I've searched the forums, but I'm uncertain whether the idea we have for implementing JavaHelp on our project is going to work the way we think it will. So, I'm throwing the following question to the community at large for general comment.
We have a J2EE application with dual interfaces, a desktop swing based gui for the core users, and a web (applet) based interface for remote users. The users understandably are asking for a help system. Static help pages would constitute a maintenance problem we don't want to get involved in. So, here was our, ok I'll admit it my idea, store the help information in Oracle tables and provide entity beans to provide the help information, including the preformatted html and dynamic html on demand.
Basically the question at hand is how feasable is this as an implementation of JavaHelp, and what kinds of pitfalls can I expect to encounter in the implementation?
All comments gratefully accepted.
