Re: [platform-help-dev] Location of doc.zip

The toc.xml can be in a subdirectory (if it is such declared in
plugin.xml).  The doc.zip file must be at a plug-in root.  The content of
doc.zip itself may be organized into directories.
If you really need to have documentation packaged in non standard way, in
3.0 M2 you can contribute a content producer to
org.eclipse.help.contentProducer extension point.  You would need to
implement reading documents from the different location by content
producer.

Can doc.zip be located in a folder below the plugin folder? My developer
would like to use a folder structure like:

blah.component
            src
            bin
            icons
            help
                  doc.zip
                  toc.xml
            plugin.xml
            plugin.properties

When I do this, the help TOC appears in the navigation pane, but Eclipse
cannot find the topics themselves. If I put the HTML files in the help
folder as separate files, Eclipse finds them just fine. however, Eclipse
does not appear to search doc.zip when it is in a folder within the plugin
folder.
