I have a few beginer's questions concening JavaHelp. We have a j2ee application using struts, consisting of 2 projects - model and viewController (we use JDeveloper). I dowloaded latest version of JavaHelp and managed to run serverhelp example (swing doesn't interests us). First question:

- Where to put the help files? Into separate project or somewhere inside viewController ? I must define path to *.hs file
<jh:validate helpBroker="<%= helpBroker %>" helpSetName="path/ourHelp.hs"/>
If I use separate project, does the relative path to .hs which works in JDeveloper, stay the same after deploying on various AS (Oracle, Tomcat) ? Will I find .hs file after deploy? Or is better to have the whole help put in some unchanging subdirectory in ViewController ?

- Is it possible (I guess that with swing displying it is) to have the whole help put in single jar library? I guess no. If I have topics from some static html pages and want to jump from one to another by clicking on link, the destination page (topic) must aleready been extracted somewhere. Am I right ?
