First, did you get it to work ?

Then, your second question: apparently the eclipse licence does not allow
you to select a plugin subset, but please read the licences and draw your
own conclusions.
In general, one can follow the plugin dependency chains, taking fragments
into consideration as well, and find out what plugins are really required.
Things change, so if at some point in time plugin P needs plugins A, B, and
C, it may be possible that plugin C now requires plugin D. Use PDE (open
plugin.xml using the plugin editor) to see plugin dependencies.

Hi,

Please point out if I am dumb.

I read the following article for installing the standalone help system
before I post the
first question here.
http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/~checkout~/platform-help-home/stand

alone.html

For me,
Help helpSystem = new Help("d:\\myApp\\eclipse\\plugins");
means I have to pack the eclipse plugins directory with my application, and
probably
also the runtime environment.

Ihe article says "a very small version of Eclipse that has had everything
except the help system stripped out of it", but it really did not say what
actually should be stripped out and how. I failed on various attemps to
strip it out.

Thank you.

Yiling

Yiling,

Do a search on the online docs for standalone help, there is a doc
addressing this topic.

Hi,

I want to integrate the help system into my own application, such that
I can invoke the help from my application, get rid of the eclipse
help content and put in my own content.

Is it possible to to this? I tried this:

Help myHelp = new Help("C:\\myApp\\myPlugins");

and under C:\\myApp\\myPlugins is the final.zip I downloaded from the
article
"Contribute a little help". help.jar is in my classpath.

It reports "Problem occured initializing Eclipse" message when my app
started.

Yiling
