My company's flagship product is written in JAVA. Our head developer believes that the only format JAVA CSH accepts is JavaHelp; he says he can't use WebHelp output. While we're in the process of converting our product's online documentation from RoboHelp for Word to RoboHelp HTML, I hoped to use this window of opportunity to progress from using JavaHelp to a more forward-looking layout and to solve some CSH hookup problems we've been having lately. Is JavaHelp truly the only output that enables CSH in Java applications? What SSL layout do others use? Do you know of a resource I can study and point our developer to that presents other options and ideally also how to implement them?
You need to know why the developer says webhelp cannot be used. Some believe it cannot be used at all, which is wrong. Java on a windows platform can work with webhelp. However they may be developing something that runs on a platform that does not support webhelp.
There is some information on my site about Java help but the above is it in terms of what you can use.
