Any suggestions guys how to implement Help Menu. 1.How good is it to use JeditorPane and store the html help file inside the jar file? 2. Should we provide access to documentation from the main client Window? 3.What all should be included inside the Help Menu? Thanks.
Hi Samual, No, not if you don't want to. I just used JEditorPane with HTML help files. The help sytem was accessed thru the Help->Help Topics menu item. The HTML files were added to the executable jars and loaded as a resource. I also made them available in the docs directory of the submission jar file. Hope this helps, Michael Morris

Yep. Thats what I was thinking to do. This is simple approach and should be good enough for the assignment.
