I'm trying to locate a JavaHelp API and I've been coming across a lot of dead links on the internet. Oracle has an article at http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/J2SE/Desktop/javahelp/, but when you go to the See Also links at the bottom of the page it takes you to another page with dead links. With a little persistance, the closet thing I could find was http://java.net/projects/javahelp. This seems to be the final resting place for JavaHelp, unfortunately when you click on the download link it takes you to a page where there are no files to download. Has this project been decommissioned? Has JavaHelp been replaced with a better API? If so, where is it? Are people using something else these days?
Yes, JavaHelp is dormant, but nothing else has emerged in its place. Like many other projects, its binaries didn't survive the reorganization of the java.net site. The source code available there contains NetBeans projects and Ant build files that promise to let you build everything, though.

Thanks for the reply guys. I've been doing some fishing around the internet and came across a viable substitute in case someone else may be looking. Try: http://www.pdfhelp.org/ I've been noodling with it this weekend and it's a lot easier to work with than Javahelp.
