To all who create JavaHelp,

We have a set of WebWorks jobs, and a set of batch scripts, which build our
JavaHelp and 'JAR' (zip) each component. Each component JAR is then JAR'd
into one... master JAR file which is passed onto development.

Each component JAR has Topic Alias markers set, and a .hs file in place.

What I'm struggling to find is any information on bundling a set of Help JAR
files. Are there any other files that need bundled up alongside the JAR

Is there a master .hs file required? I've found a .tbh file as well, but
struggling to ascertain what that's used for...

We inherited this system, and whilst I've sussed the various 'gotchas' the
WebWorks system has, this final step is proving harder than it should.

So, any ideas?!
