How do I create help files for Java application?

For example I have Help item in Menu and I would like to invoke .chm file.

Is there possibility to do that automatically in Eclipse ? I am using Eclipse 3.4.2.

Thank You!

The JavaHelp library is common way to creating help systems in web apps and desktop apps. It can't handle .chm file, though. There's a library called JChm on SourceForge that can read .chm files, just in case that's a requirement.

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
