I found how to create help files in Eclipse.

Does someone know some good tutorial for creation of Help files in Eclipse ?

And how do I call that file in my class on action performed method ?

Thanks!

What does Eclipse -which is an IDE- have to do with creating help files? What kind of format has that help file? Would it be code (since you mention "calling" it)?

It is an .xml file.

It is possible to create Help files and Cheet Sheets. When open Eclipse, go to New\Other\Usser Assistence\Cheet Sheet or Context Help, or Help Table of Contents.

I have small application (j2se) in java. I use Eclipse 3.4.2
I would like to provide short help in my application, when user click on Menu Item "Help" of "Help Topics", whatever.

Since I haven't done it before, and didn't figure out where to write text, I am searching for good tutorial which will help me to do that.

And when I create good .xml file, I still don't know how to refer to it from code, from the place where action performed.
