Is there a way to get context-sensitive help in eclipse. In Delphi, if I place my cursor in a type and hit F1, I get help specific to that type of object. In eclipse, I get generic, 'how to use the editor' type help.
Any way to place my cursor on a java.util.List, hit a key and get the api javadoc for java.util.list?
Hi Clifford, And after I set up my javadoc directory in my project properties, I can use Shift-F2 to open new help window.
Hope this helps thanks daniel

Thanks for the responses.
OK, I have this partially figured out. By going into window->preferences and adding the javadoc to the jre config, I now get more info on core java objects. However, I can't seem to get the same behavior for struts and hibernate objects. I've added the javadoc location for hibernate2.jar and struts.jar, but I still only get a small box with 'net.sf.hibernate.SessionFactory' in it.
I did just find out that hitting Shift-F2 opens the javadoc in my browser. That's nice.
