Eclipse Help system: packaging it as a web app [message #471598] Wed, 30 January 2008 15:05 Go to next message

I apologize for second post...
I posted this message a week ago on newcomer group but have not gotten any
response yet. Perhaps my question does not belong to that group.

Anyhow the question is:
I have Web application running in servlet container. Application launches
Eclipse Help and I want to make Eclipse Help system to use my web server
where application runs to serve help pages.

Is it possible in Eclipse 3.3 or 3.4?

Or is it possible to package up Help system as a web application and
deploy
it on my web server?


Thank you

In Eclipse 3.4 we added the capability to package the help system as a
war file.

See https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=201666 for more
details, and also

Thanks a lot Chris! I've got it running. Will do more experiments with
deployment.

Chris,

Just curious why org.mortbay.jetty_5.1.11.v200711021015.jar listed among
dependent plug ins. I would think that the main point of your excellent
work is to get rid of hard dependency of an embedded web server.

Thanks

It's possible that we have more jars than we need. It's also possible
that one of the projects has a non optional dependency on
org.mortbay.jetty. Did you try taking jetty out to see what happens? I'd
try it myself but I'm in the middle of working on something else right now.

Done as you suggested. Do not see any problems so far.
BTW my environemtn is Windows & Tomcat 6.0.14 (standalone or embedded).
Will try against embedded Jetty later.

Thanks Chris. Excellent and extremely useful job!

I verified that removing org.eclipse.mortbay.jetty does not break
anything - I have removed it from the feature in the
org.eclipse.help.webapp project.
