I've already posted this to eclipse.platform, sorry if anybody gets it
twice. I was told you could help me out :-)

Am I able to set the URL that shows up when the user clicks on Help ->
Help Conents menu item in my product?

I've found in the docs that I've to set this property value in the
plugin_customization.ini file, but this doesn't works for me :-(


org.eclipse.help.base/help_home=http://www.my.url


My problem is that the product still wants to use the default Eclipse
settings for it, and I get an empty screen with the following error:

HTTP ERROR: 404
ProxyServlet: /help/index.jsp
RequestURI=/help/index.jsp
Powered by Jetty://


Anybody has any clue about how to make that correctly? Or any
workarounds, like disabling the whole help stuff by default (since we
don't have any real help content).

Richard

The customization you are using allows you to specify what page shows in
the right hand frame of the help browser. What appears to be happening
in your case is that the jsp which loads the frames is not being loaded.
If you have an RCP application that would most likely be due to missing
plugins. If you have a product based on the Eclipse platform or SDK ir
may be a product configuration issue.

Disabling the help system and removing the menu items is fairly easy to
do, but I would need to know more about what you are building - are you
building an RCP application or do you have a product which extends the
Eclipse platform or SDK?

Thanks for replying, I've almost given up the hope :-)

Hey, you were absolutely right!! After I've changed the launch
configuration's Plug-ins settings from only the required ones to "all
workspace and enabled target plug-ins", its working perfectly!

So I guess what I only have to do is to hunt down the required plugins
and add them to my product configuration.

My onlyiest problem is that I don't see the Workbrench user guide in the
contents :-( Which plugin do I need for? I've included several of them
on try-and-let's-see-if-it-works, but haven't found it yet...

Thanks again, Chris!
