I need to serve online help for a web application running in a Software
As A Service (SAAS) environment. There are several instances of the web
application running on the JBoss application server. I've got my help
content running in Eclipse and it looks great. I have a few questions
about connecting the web applications to the help system.

1. If I start an instance of standalone help, can more than one web
application instance invoke displayHelp? Will each invocation of
displayHelp start a new help server instance?

2. If I run an instance of standalone help on one server and I have a
web application running on another server, is it possible for the web
application to call the help classes on the standalone help server? Can
the web application and the help system be running on different servers?

3. I must ensure that unknown users on the Internet cannot access the
online help. If I run an instance of standalone help and have the web
applications invoke it via Java, do I need to make the help system
directly available to the internet? It looks to me that I don't but I
want to confirm.

Thanks for your help.
