TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
We use JavaHelp for a Java application. It is fairly
slow (like most Java apps) but works quite well. We
have found it reasonably straightforward to implement,
and the full-text search is nice. I would recommend
JavaHelp for a Java application.
I would not recommend using JavaHelp for a plain
web-based application: just go with basic HTML or, if
you prefer, one of the many HTML-based help systems.
Also note that JavaHelp does not currently have
server-based version (although one is apparently in
the works) so it is not appropriate for Java applets,
Hope this helps.
