Help for a Web application with HelpServer

**This is a vendor post**

Luiz,

Ever thought about Web based help for your web applications?
HelpServer offers this functionality. The help content is not integrated
in the application but resides on a repository that is accessed over the
intranet or internet.
In addition, setting up help for a web application is a matter of adding
one script in the header file of your applications HTML. This results in
a very easy way to set up up on line contextual help and documentation
that resides outside the application, can be shared between
applications, and can easily be changed and translated.

Through this tool, or another one, can I change, for example, one specific
word in any place (HMTL/JSP file) it is?

Let me give an example. If a have the word "wonderful" into 599 HMTL/JSP
files, can I change this word to, for example, "amazing" in all the 599
files automatically? This is something that I need.

Another thing I must is a way to compile all the HTML/JSP files with TOC,
Index and Search tools to be publish in the Internet (through browsers)
without needing any applet or something like that.

When I write HTML/JSP, I mean a way to use i18n, because I have to publish
my content in different languages.

Thanks in advance!

Luiz,

Yes you can make 'global changes', with one find/change command, change
all occurrences of a certain string by some other string
Just for your clarification, the content is not in files but in a
relational data base, any JDBC compliant data base will do.
If you have indicated words to become 'Index' words', creating the index
requires two clicks..
Creating a TOC for a printed document (pdf) is done automatically on
request (TOC yes or no, at the beginning or the end of the document,
same as Index).
Full text search is allways possible. When content is loaded or created
in the repsoitory, the text is scanned for words and these words are
processed for fast, even complex full text searches.
Pubishing on the internet: the only thing you need to do is copy the URL
of the HelpServer document, folder with documents or individual topic,
whatever you want to make available on the internet or intranet, and
paste it in the HTML of your website. The content stays in the
HelpServer repository and is maintained there. You can read more about
this if you click here

No applet needed... standard URL and web access.
Language support: HelpServer provides many ways to get your content
translated. You can translate in HelpSErver by using the translate tab,
you can create an XML file and file Xfer it to the localizer, or you can
use SOAP to communicate directly with the loalizer for translation. Read
more about this here

Kind regards,
Rigo

Hi Rigo,

This global change feature is pretty good!

But, please, I didn't understand something. Do I need to run a HelpServer
together my web server to provide the help or I need only copy the content
generated into the tool to the web server?

What about the license of your tool? Do I need to pay for a license in which
one machine that I run the authoring tool or only one license is enough? How
much will I pay for the tool?

People, please, if you know about another FREE authoring tool, please, tell
me.

Thanks in advance!

Luiz,

HelpServer is web and server based. This means that you need to run
HelpServer as a Web application using Tomcat or another web server to
connect to the internet. Most installations opt for linux with MySql and
Tomcat. This works fine
HelpServer receives the requests (URL), eventually maintains and uses a
user profile to provide the content in the right language, or to provide
other kinds of dynamic content depending on the different audiences to
be served.
The content is loaded by an author: all existing content can be loaded,
and delivered by a browser or a browser plug in. (Word, pdf, spread
sheet, pdf, images, Audio, video, flash ... you name it).
A WYSIWYG word processor (like Word) is delivered with the product for
content creation.
The content is stored in XML format in the repository.
HelpServer tailors it and sends it to the browser, any browser.
The licensing is based on the number of concurrent authors and is not
related to the hardware or software platform. For more information,
