I want to use the Eclipse help as standalone infocenter. I have customized it as far as possible so that only the needed plugins are loaded to show the infocenter.|
Now when I try to put in my created plugins containing the help files nothing is shown in the topic list and I cannot see if Eclipse loads the bundles. A restart of the infocenter has also no effect. When I load the appropriate plugin in my workbench, everything works fine.
This is the command for starting the infocenter:
java -classpath $base_path/plugins/org.eclipse.help.base_3.4.0.v200909170800 .jar org.eclipse.help.standalone.Infocenter -debug -command start -eclipsehome $base_path -port 8080 -plugincustomization $base_path/custom.ini
And thats what is in custom.ini:
helpData.xml looks like this:
And plugin.xml is this one:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
Maybe someone has encountered the same problems and can give me a hint.

We ran into this problem last year too. I had an intern do a lot of trial and error, and he discovered that you have to update this file so your plugins are recognized:|
We couldn't figure out what all of the values were supposed to be, but by adapting the other lines in the file, we were able to get our plugins to display in InfoCenter mode. Apparently, this file is updated automatically in platform mode, but not in InfoCenter.
As best we can figure, the entry is:
We have no idea what the 4 and the false mean.
Here's a generic version of the line we add:
Hope that helps.
