Help and Dynamic Loading of doc.isv bundles [message #336976] Fri, 17 July 2009 18:02 Go to next message

I am trying to dynamically load and unload doc.isv bundles to allow access
to javadoc through the Help system. The load of the doc.isv bundles is
fine, I am able to see and navigate the links successfully when I bring up
Help. But, the unload of the same bundles leave the top links from the
javadoc of the doc.isv bundle left in the Help system. Anyone know how to
reset the Help System programmatically, so that the dead links are cleared
up?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Ganapati,

There's a newsgroup specifically for Help system questions. It is
eclipse.platform.ua

You might want to repost your message to eclipse.platform.ua newsgroup.

Using the -clean parameter upon restart used to clean up the links in
the help system's TOC. However, I always see that the Lucene search
index remains cached, even when -clean is used. I'm not sure if that is
the same symptom that you are having. Some bugs were filed in Bugzilla
related to how to force refresh of the Help system's cached data:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=75958
and
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=212399

If either of these is related to what you need, it might help for 3.6
planning purposes for you to comment on the bugs and vote for whichever
one you need. I noticed that Bugzilla 212399 was opened before 3.4, and
it wasn't addressed in 3.5 either.

Hope this helps,
Lee Anne

Thanks, Lee Anne. Using HelpPlugin.getTocManager().clearCache() helps
clear the caches and allows for the dynamic loading/unloading of the
doc.isv bundles, I will update Bug 212399 with this use-case and push for
exposing this functionality as API.
