Copying this to the eclipse.platform.ua newsgroup where questions about
Help usually go.

I'm guessing that you have your own product based on Eclipse. There are
a couple of options:

1. Remove the plugins which contribute help to Eclipse from the eclipse
plugins directory. There 5 plugins all have a plugin name ending in .doc.

OR

2. Use the HELP_DATA customization. See
http://help.eclipse.org/ganymede/topic/org.eclipse.platform. doc.isv/guide/ua_help_setup_preferences.htm
and
http://help.eclipse.org/ganymede/topic/org.eclipse.platform. doc.isv/guide/ua_help_setup_help_data.htm

Thank you very much Chris. I extracted the content of
org.eclipse.help.base jar file to change help_home.html.
Is it possible to override the default help_home.html
file without changing it?

Yes, you can override it. Here's an example from the UA test suite of
how to customize various properties including help_home.

Scenario D: Customization
D1: Help preferences
Create a file plugin_customization.ini in the root of Eclipse
installation. Edit the file and paste the following key/values pairs:

org.eclipse.help/baseTOCS=/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/toc. xml,/org.eclipse.jdt.doc.isv/toc.xml
org.eclipse.help/ignoredTOCS=/org.eclipse.platform.doc.user/ toc.xml,/org.eclipse.jdt.doc.user/toc.xml,/org.eclipse.pde.d oc.user/toc.xml
org.eclipse.help/HELP_DATA=

org.eclipse.help.base/topic_css=/org.eclipse.ua.tests/non_ju nit/css/topic.css
org.eclipse.help.base/nav_css=/org.eclipse.ua.tests/non_juni t/css/nav.css
org.eclipse.help.base/narrow_css=/org.eclipse.ua.tests/non_j unit/css/narrow.css
org.eclipse.help.base/disabled_css=/org.eclipse.ua.tests/non _junit/css/disabled.css

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

org.eclipse.help.base/banner=/org.eclipse.help.webapp/advanc ed/banner.html
org.eclipse.help.base/banner_height=60
org.eclipse.help.base/help_home=http://www.eclipse.org
org.eclipse.help.base/linksView=false
org.eclipse.help.base/bookmarksView=false
org.eclipse.help.base/windowTitlePrefix=false
org.eclipse.help.base/advanced.toolbarBackground=green
org.eclipse.help.base/advanced.viewBackground=yellow
org.eclipse.help.base/advanced.toolbarFont=bold 1.0em sans-serif
org.eclipse.help.base/advanced.viewFont=italic 1.0em sans-serif
org.eclipse.help.base/showDisabledActivityTopics=never
org.eclipse.help.base/activeHelp=false


<!-- You can skip this step
Download the eclipse automated test framework and install into your
Eclipse installation.

Download the eclipse automated tests and copy the plugin
org.eclipse.ua.tests into your Eclipse plugins directory.
-->


Launch Eclipse, pointing to the preferences customization, e.g. eclipse
-pluginCustomization plugin_customization.ini

From the workbench menu: Help->Help Contents. This should open the help
browser. Verify existence of banner frame above search toolbar.

The page displayed in the content frame should be eclipse.org page.

There should be only two Eclipse books displayed Plugin Developer Guide
and JDT Development Guide, in that order. Other Eclipse books should not
appear.

Search for "workbench". Verify there are no hits from Workbench User
Guide that is not present.

Verify there is only Contents, Index and Search tabs at the bottom of
navigation frame, other views (Links and Bookmarks) are not present.

Verify the browser title shows product name.

'The topic that you have requested is not available. The link may be
wrong, or you may not have the corresponding product feature installed.
This online help only includes documentation for features that are

Can't I use simple file instead of a valid URL?

We are going to use only eclipse help system. We started with this article
http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/opensource/library/os- echelp/index.html

Thanks.

If you do something like this

org.eclipse.help.base/help_home = /<plugin_name>/<path_within_plugin>

it should work for you.

Here is directory hierarchy and files I referred
c:\

|----- org.eclipse.help.base_3.3.1.v20070813_33x
|----- doc
help_home.html
....
....
org.eclipse.help.base_3.3.1.v20070813_33x.jar
....

plugin_customization.ini file content is

org.eclipse.help.base/help_home=/org.eclipse.help.base_3.3.1 .v20070813_33x/doc/help_home.html


If I write path with some backslash e.g.
org.eclipse.help.base/help_home=\help

I get

HTTP ERROR: 404
ProxyServlet: /help/topichelp
RequestURI=/help/topichelp

Powered by Jetty://

If I keep empty right side of '=', I get empty welcome page without
content and any warning.
And with any valid URL I get web page content.


Thank you for time and attention.

Try
org.eclipse.help.base/help_home=/org.eclipse.help.base/doc/h elp_home.html

instead of

org.eclipse.help.base/help_home=/org.eclipse.help.base_3.3.1 .v20070813_33x/doc/help_home.html

help uses the id of the plugin, not the name of the folder or jar file
where it lives.

I'm guessing that you have your own product based on Eclipse. There are
a couple of options:

1. Remove the plugins which contribute help to Eclipse from the eclipse
plugins directory. There 5 plugins all have a plugin name ending in .doc.

OR

2. Use the HELP_DATA customization. See

Yes, you can override it. Here's an example from the UA test suite of
how to customize various properties including help_home.

Scenario D: Customization
D1: Help preferences
Create a file plugin_customization.ini in the root of Eclipse
installation. Edit the file and paste the following key/values pairs:

org.eclipse.help/baseTOCS=/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/toc. xml,/org.eclipse.jdt.doc.isv/toc.xml
org.eclipse.help/ignoredTOCS=/org.eclipse.platform.doc.user/ toc.xml,/org.eclipse.jdt.doc.user/toc.xml,/org.eclipse.pde.d oc.user/toc.xml
org.eclipse.help/HELP_DATA=

org.eclipse.help.base/topic_css=/org.eclipse.ua.tests/non_ju nit/css/topic.css
org.eclipse.help.base/nav_css=/org.eclipse.ua.tests/non_juni t/css/nav.css
org.eclipse.help.base/narrow_css=/org.eclipse.ua.tests/non_j unit/css/narrow.css
org.eclipse.help.base/disabled_css=/org.eclipse.ua.tests/non _junit/css/disabled.css

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

org.eclipse.help.base/banner=/org.eclipse.help.webapp/advanc ed/banner.html
org.eclipse.help.base/banner_height=60
org.eclipse.help.base/help_home=http://www.eclipse.org
org.eclipse.help.base/linksView=false
org.eclipse.help.base/bookmarksView=false
org.eclipse.help.base/windowTitlePrefix=false
org.eclipse.help.base/advanced.toolbarBackground=green
org.eclipse.help.base/advanced.viewBackground=yellow
org.eclipse.help.base/advanced.toolbarFont=bold 1.0em sans-serif
org.eclipse.help.base/advanced.viewFont=italic 1.0em sans-serif
org.eclipse.help.base/showDisabledActivityTopics=never
org.eclipse.help.base/activeHelp=false


<!-- You can skip this step
Download the eclipse automated test framework and install into your
Eclipse installation.

Download the eclipse automated tests and copy the plugin
org.eclipse.ua.tests into your Eclipse plugins directory.
-->


Launch Eclipse, pointing to the preferences customization, e.g. eclipse
-pluginCustomization plugin_customization.ini

From the workbench menu: Help->Help Contents. This should open the help
browser. Verify existence of banner frame above search toolbar.

The page displayed in the content frame should be eclipse.org page.

There should be only two Eclipse books displayed Plugin Developer Guide
and JDT Development Guide, in that order. Other Eclipse books should not
appear.

Search for "workbench". Verify there are no hits from Workbench User
Guide that is not present.

Verify there is only Contents, Index and Search tabs at the bottom of
navigation frame, other views (Links and Bookmarks) are not present.

Verify the browser title shows product name.

If you do something like this

org.eclipse.help.base/help_home = /<plugin_name>/<path_within_plugin>

it should work for you.

....

plugin_customization.ini file content is

org.eclipse.help.base/help_home=/org.eclipse.help.base_3.3.1 .v20070813_33x/doc/help_home.html


If I write path with some backslash e.g.
org.eclipse.help.base/help_home=\help

I get

HTTP ERROR: 404
ProxyServlet: /help/topichelp
RequestURI=/help/topichelp

Powered by Jetty://

If I keep empty right side of '=', I get empty welcome page without
content and any warning.
And with any valid URL I get web page content.


Thank you for time and attention.

Try
org.eclipse.help.base/help_home=/org.eclipse.help.base/doc/h elp_home.html

instead of

org.eclipse.help.base/help_home=/org.eclipse.help.base_3.3.1 .v20070813_33x/doc/help_home.html

help uses the id of the plugin, not the name of the folder or jar file
where it lives.

Sorry, found the problem. It was a plug-in manifest issue. Thanks Chris.

Hi Chris, I forgot to mention that a plug-in manifest issue was the last
one and before I corrected plugin's id. Thank you again.
