General help documentation development question [message #609382] Wed, 06 February 2008 15:57

Hello all,

We are looking to integrate help documentation into our Eclipse based tool.
We are searching for an efficient means of doing this that allows us to:
a) Develop and maintain our documentation in an efficient way (i.e., a
traditional word processor)
b) Obtain the HTML files at the level of granularity necessary to populate
the built-in Eclipse help services, including infopop content, and
c) Publish traditional paper documentation (in the form of manuals) that we
would optionally make available to our customers

As we are currently an MS Word house, that was my first area of
investigation... however it appears that MS Word has no native means of
breaking up a documents content into individual HTML files. Thus, a 100
page reference manual would be exported to a single giant HTML file, which
is of much less use in the Eclipse help environment.

So my questions are:

1) What techniques/products do others use to accomplish these goals?

2) What mechanism does the Eclipse organization use to author and deploy
its own help content?

Many thanks,
