I have an infocenter as web app, and it's been working well. Now indexing hangs with a new install, never gets beyond 0% in an endless loop. There have been no changes to the infocenter since it was a working web app. I'm wondering if it's the Java version on the app server or on the client. Any suggestions?

Solution, I think, in case it helps someone else. I'm surprised it hasn't been posted yet. Firefox 3.5.6 requires JRE 1.6 update 10 or higher. I came across this notice for Firefox 3.6, but it fixed 3.5.6 (http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/firefox_newplugin.xml) . The browser on my local host had JRE 1.6 and indexing did not hang. Same infocenter application, with a browser on JRE 1.5, indexing hangs.

I don't understand why this would fix the problem, the help system where the indexing is taking place runs on a server and the indexing should be unrelated to the choice of browser.

I did wonder the same but had to try to fix it for the customer. This worked. I was able to get indexing from IE but not Firefox on the same infocenter, until I upgraded the VM in Firefox. I'm guessing it's the browser request for indexing, but I don't know whether the Eclipse helps runs any java in the browser. The search box loads a JSP page which may in turn run a local applet. Just a guess.

In this case, I guess pre-indexing might be of some help to you. Please read through http://help.eclipse.org/help33/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse. platform.doc.isv/guide/ua_help_setup_preindex.htm.

It worked for me...
