Do we have to provide online help for the assignment?
What i meant was: from the GUI do we need to support online help (like F1 or help button)?
Thanks

It would be a good idea! That is what I did and think that it is the best way to go. You can use a JEditorPane to display the HTML file then use a HyperLinkListener to capture the hyperlink events on that HTML file. Really works well and it looks professional, give it a try

Actually i have already implemented full JavaHelp spec once. So for me, its easy to embed online help. what i was really wondering is whether its required as part of the requirements in the assignment.
Yeah you are right, JEditorpane usage is the correct. And we can even use separate jar files for HTML help.
Thanks
