Is there a recommended way of embedding online help information generated with RoboHelp in a Java desktop application? I have tried OHJ (Oracle help v12.2.1.0.0) with limited success but the lack of documentation prevents me from overcoming difficulties with the OHJ interface, in particular the inability to have any control over docking navigator and topic panes and sizing of panes being the main obstacles.

Both JavaHelp and Oracle Help never worked very well and I think it is fair to say they have been abandoned. Most modern authoring tools no longer support them. They are covered on my site in a topic written long ago. Personally I would no longer go near them.

 

To the best of my knowledge webhelp is what gets used. In Classic versions of RoboHelp including the current one, webhelp is still known by that name. In the latest 2019 New UI, the frameless and responsive skins both have a switch to turn off responsiveness so that they are effectively webhelp as in Classic versions.
