How can a Robhelp project be integrated within an Oracle web application

Nov 30, 2012 9:19 AM

Is it possible to distribute a webhelp project within an application without using map ID's or point to the files before it converts to html?  I'm publishing to Robohelp 9 server using the HTTP path and need to integrate the help project in an Oracle web application with the ability to drill down the individual topics withou using anchors/mapping.  Please advise, thank you.

    A few clarification questions:

    - are you generating WebHelp or WebHelp Pro help output?

    - where are publishing this content to? a web server or a web server running Robohelp Server?


    You can always explicitly call individual html pages within WebHelp help content - it's just more of a pain to do that from the calling application.

    Ok, so you don't want to do Context Sensitive Help (CSH) calls from within the app; what's the problem with just launching the start page of the help content? It's usually called "index.htm", but you can call it whatever name you want when you generate the help. Then it just launches in a browser - there's no API involved.

    You probably should check with the Oracle app people to see if you can run a browser within their app and not have to launch an external browser to display the index.htm file. I highly doubt it something that has anything to do with RH.
