I thought I read that you can serve up different help centers from one Eclipse installation. Currently, I copy the entire Eclipse directory, including configuration/ and plugins/ each time I want a new help center and I'm worried about how this will scale.

I have done some research using the Information Center Help topic (which I would link to but I can't yet as I am a new member) and I thought I needed to add a "-data newdir" to the start scripts as well as a directory for each help center in workspace/newdir/ but it doesn't work. I get the following error:

./ line 4: -data: command not found

If anyone has any insight or resources that they can point me to, I'd really appreciate it!

I haven't actually tried this, but I seem to remember that you can do what you want to do by using different ports. So when you start the eclipse help system for productA, you might specify port 8888 and for productB you specify port 8889. Then, use the correct port in the URL when you access the help system. Obviously, you can also point to different plugin_customization files too, so you should get two instances (that could look very different) running on different ports.

Good luck!
