I am providing online help using the JEditorPane. Right now,
I give a file url to my URL object which is hardcoded, ie,
urlString = "file://c:\\scjd\\suncertify\\docs\\userGuide.html";
My question is should I do that, since I read somewhere in the
instructions that the app and its functions are supposed to work from any directory where they are installed. Here I am assuming that the grader will unpack my jar file in the root directory. How have you guys who passed and used online help handled this issue?

Ultimately I did not use this approach, but initially I had it posted on the Web...just some space I had out there that I knew was stable and all. If I understand the directions clearly, I believe this is permissable. That way it doesn't matter where they unpack your stuff...in your assumptions you might state you assume that they have a connection to the web. Of course, you should be confident that where you post it is a stable site.
