I just wanted to post a follow up to my post. Thank you for the response Chris. I had seen your post to someone else regarding this fix. I tried it and it didn't work for me either. I did extensive testing with several different versions of Eclipse. We have running 3.6.0 which a person other than me setup (he wasn't available to query). He got it running with helpData.xml but that didn't work for me -- not even when I tried to recreate with the same version. I was at a loss --- but it seemed other people had experienced problems with helpData.xml.
My goal was to find a configuration that worked with the latest version of Eclipse. This is what I found worked and worked consistently.
+ Specify the -pluginCustomization flag when starting Eclipse
+ Used the baseTOCs and ignoredTOCs keywords
+ Also used the help_home, banner, and banner_height keywords
My plugin_customization.ini file looks like:
# Order help books in table of contents
org.eclipse.help/ignoredTOCS=/org.eclipse.mylyn.help.ui/Mylyn-FAQ-toc.xml,/org.eclipse.mylyn.help.ui/Mylyn-User-Guide-toc.xml,/org.eclipse.mylyn.help.ui/toc.xml,/org.eclipse.mylyn.help.ui/primary-toc.xml,/org.eclipse.mylyn.ide.ui/doc/toc.xml,/org.eclipse.mylyn.java.ui/doc/toc.xml,/org.eclipse.mylyn.resources.ui/doc/toc.xml,/org.eclipse.mylyn.tasks.ui/doc/toc.xml,/org.eclipse.mylyn.wikitext.help.ui/help/Mylyn WikiText User Guide-toc.xml,/org.eclipse.mylyn.wikitext.help.ui/help/devguide/WikiText Developer Guide-toc.xml,/org.eclipse.mylyn.wikitext.help.ui/toc.xml,/org.eclipse.epp.mpc.help.ui/toc.xml,/org.eclipse.epp.usagedata.ui/toc.xml,/org.eclipse.egit.doc/help/toc.xml,/org.eclipse.platform.doc.user/toc.xml,/org.eclipse.jdt.doc.user/toc.xml,/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/toc.xml,/org.eclipse.jdt.doc.isv/toc.xml,/org.eclipse.pde.doc.user/toc.xml
# org.eclipse.help.base/help_home = /com.myplugin/help_home.html
# org.eclipse.help.base/banner = /com.myplugin/banner.html
# org.eclipse.help.base/banner_height = 90
I think helpData.xml would be the more elegant solution but it wouldn't work for me.
