As part of our product, we would like to let users run the standalone help
application separate from the product itself. Ideally, I want to do the
1. Start the help server and the standalone help application. Right now I
have to do this using two commands:
eclipse.exe -nosplash -application
javaw -cp "plugins\org.eclipse.help.base_3.3.0.v20070606.jar"
org.eclipse.help.standalone.Help -eclipsehome "." -command displayHelp
That way there is only a single "eclipse.exe" process. If you try to simply
do the "javaw..." you end up with 3 running processes: an eclipse.exe, a
small javaw controller, and a large javaw help server.
2. When the user closes the help application, stop the "eclipse.exe"
What I really want is a single command that will fire up the server *and*
standalone help application, and then stop the server when the user closes
I don't think I can do this using the existing (Eclipse 3.3) implementation,
so my question is...where would I look in the help plugins, so I can add a
hack to stop the help server when the user closes the app?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
