Hi,

I seem to be having a few problems with our JavaHelps.
We recently migrated from jh1.0 to jh1.1.3 and from JDK 1.2.2 to J2SE 1.4.2.

Below are the problems we can't solve:
1. The search hi-lite is off a few characters.
2. The linked text of the Glossary pop up definitions has a space after the
tag int he html but in 1.4.2 there isno space after the

Perhaps you created the full-text search database with Java 1.2.2?

Then, I would recommend to recreate the full-text search database
with Java 1.4.2.

HI,

Thanx for your reply.

Maybe I'm missing something here. I created the full text search using the
jhindexer command in jh1.1.3 and I jarred the help using the jar command in
1.4.2. I am viewing the help under 1.4.2 jre.

Any ideas?

Thanx
Rivka

It depends what Java version was used by the jhindexer command.
If your application uses 1.4.2 you should also use Java 1.4.2
when calling jhindexer.

Take a look at the jhindexer.bat file.

If you are unsure, please note you can call jhindexer directly
in the following way:

\bin\java
-jar
\javahelp\bin\jhindexer.jar

Some comments:
- The complete command must be in one line
- Replace
with the path to 1.4.2
- Replace
with the path to JH 1.1.3
- Replace with your arguments

This way, you can make sure 1.4.2 is used.

There can also be other reasons for the offset. See a posting
from Larry Hoffman:

It's also interesting to read this posting from Roger Brinkley:
http://swjscmail1.java.sun.com/cgi-bin/wa?A2=ind0301&L=javahelp-interest...

Hope this helps,

Stephan
