I've downloaded Ganymede (Eclipse Classic), generated documentation
plugins, and have been successful making them available through Infocenter.

Now, I'd like to do further customizations.

The first is to remove the default documentation plug-ins that came with
my download. The Infocenter is displaying help for the workbench, Java
development, JDT plug-n development, and plug-in development environment.
I've manually removed the JDT plug-ins, but its help remains in my
Infocenter. Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to remove
these plug-ins?

The second is that my script to start Infocenter is pointing to my own
plugin_customization.ini, but setting HELP_DATA to my toc has no effect.

I really appreciate some help or being pointed in the right direction. The
documentation I've been reading has been interesting, but hasn't helped in
these areas.

I realize this is probably a hack, but it will work for my prototype.

Something that Lee Anne wrote about cache data in Ganymede led me to
removed unwanted doc plugin entries from
configuration/org.eclipse.equinox.simpleconfigurator. This did the trick.
My Infocenter now only show the plugins I've added.

Thanks Lee Anne!

Hi Mike, it's good to hear that you got something to work for this.

Would you please clarify about what you did to remove the entries?

I mean, did you edit the bundles.info file and take out the unwanted doc
plugin entries from there, and saving the edited bundles.info file in
the directory?

Or did you delete the bundles.info file altogether?

Thanks in advance!

Sorry, I meant to write add this. I used a text editor to remove the
entries for unwanted bundles from bundles.info and saved it back to
configuration/org.eclipse.equinox.simpleconfigurator.

I determined which bundles to remove by looking at the properties of
content pages of unwanted documents displayed in Infocenter.

Hi Mike, thanks for this info!

This sounds like a straightforward fix to address the 'caching' effects
for either the standalone help or infocenter scenarios using Eclipse
3.4. Thank you for trying it out and also for posting your success here.
It's so helpful when someone writes about what works for them.

If you find that you run into future buggy behavior using this
procedure, I hope that you will post again here, so that we can all learn.

Thanks again,
Lee Anne
