Hi amala and welcome to the RH community.

From what I gleaned from my colleague, the developers do not want to spend too much time on product documentation, and are hoping for a rough and ready online help system.
If you were me, you'd be typing your resignation letter right now
First off, you do not need RH to produce webhelp output but you do need a help authoring tool like RH. As for doing this automatically, you can't whilst using RH. You may be able to produce some HTML pages using the extracted Java code but you don't need RH, or any other tool, to do this.
Anyway as I more or less stated earlier, it may be prudent to suggest that if they want documentation that no one uses they are going about it the right way.
Why don't they just provide that descriptive content in tooltips?
Thanks for responding! :-)
I guess different product groups with different priorities, release schedules, and platforms, as also different users with different expectations was too much for the development team to handle and quality documentation is the first thing to fall by the wayside.
But the tooltip sounds like a great idea. I'll suggest it to my colleague so she can pass it along.
