I'm having trouble picturing exactly the connection between running your
RCP product and the help system/infocenter set-up. This is what I'm
imagining you mean. Please confirm this picture, or correct it as needed:
- You have an RCP product, written based on Eclipse, that is to run on
someone's desktop machine.

- You want the help system for that RCP product to *not* be installed on
that desktop machine (?).

- You want the Help menus and buttons for that RCP product user
interface running on that desktop machine to link to the help
system/infocenter running remotely on a server machine, at your own
website (?).

Is that the correct scenario for what you are trying to achieve?

The "remote infocenter" might be the solution for the scenario, but it's
not clear if this is the scenario that you have in mind.

I'm adding newsgroup to this thread, as that
newsgroup deals with help system/infocenter questions.
