Hi,

I understand you can either have local Eclipse help [1] or access Infocenter on an external server with a browser [2].

I think the best were to have the good GUI of local Eclipse help with remote content. Can you link to HTML files on a web server from a local toc.xml?

Thanks,
Juergen

Yes you can specify the hrefs in the toc as fully qualified URLs such as http://www.eclipse.org/forums

Thanks, that's great, I got it working.

Still better were if you could set a base url to the toc instead for each html source:

<toc label="My Example Book" topic="index.html" baseurl="http://myserver/help/myapp/">

Greetings,
Juergen

You can also have a remote table of contents. If you go to the help / remote content preference page you can specify an infocenter to use that will provide content for you. For example you can set http://help.eclipse.org/galileo/index.jsp as your remote infocenter and then the documents from that site will appear in your local help system.

This feature is intended to allow products to have some or all of their documentation provided from a remote server.
