Problems with RCP Help in 3.3 [message #586070] Sun, 30 September 2007 22:27

Migrated to 3.3 and my RCP help system continues to work on OSX platform but
breaks on Win32 with an error involving index.jsp. I noted the previous
thread about this, and my old help plugin requested Tomcat, etc. so I
changed this to only depend on and and I have my run configuration check for optional
dependencies. However, my error persists, and is an HTTP ERROR: 500 unable
to compile class for JSP, RequestURI=/help/index.jsp (and says powered by
Jetty, etc.)

When I examine the plugins in the exported product, Tomcat is still present,
which is disturbing since it is not checked off as a required plugin in my
run configuration, and I wonder if this is part of my problem.

Interestingly, if I select dynamic help, the entire system works inside that
window, with full access to all content, etc. Just does not work when I
select "Help Contents" and an external browser is invoked.

The documentation about Help continues to indicate the need to add the
larger number of plugin dependencies and I am working off the paper from
September by Goldthorpe and Archer.

Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to provide.
