This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I don't understand your question at all; how do you access JavaHelp (which is a Swing-based tool) using HTTP or HTTPS? Do you mean you've used JavaHelp in an applet, or maybe a JavaWebStart application, and you can't use HTTPS with that? Or when you use HTTPS with your applet, the JavaHelp part won't work?
Can you please explain exactly what you're talking about?
