Is there an external method to get the randomly chosen port number when standalone help is launched [message #605437] Wed, 19 December 2007 20:09

Hi,

This is a repost of a question originally posted by Pierre Candela. I
responded incorrectly to his original post, so am reposting the question
in case it accidentally got overlooked.

When you launch the standalone help by API, the help system randomly
selects a port for the internal app server to run on.

Post-launch, are there any external methods or other API to find out
which port was selected?

Pierre pointed out the internal
org.eclipse.help.internal.standalone.Options.getConnectionFi le(). But is
there something that is external to get this info?

Thanks!
Lee Anne

(Pierre, if I have again misunderstood the gist of your original
question, do let us know.)
