JavaHelp is based on Swing, so in the context of a web app it can only be used if you have an applet somewhere. Is that want you want to do? Or are you looking for an HTML-based help system?

I deployed a j2ee-struts application in the oracle10g as.
now i make the jar for myhelp.jar.
I am not looking for html help.
My problem is where should i put the neccesary jar and how i embed the swing in my jsp or html page which is opening from menu,so that when the user click on button the help system would appear.
Thanks and regards,

Then you will need an applet embedded in your web page that can open JavaHelp. The download comes with several examples that show how to use it.

If you have an applet for displaying the help, then all the resources it needs must be in a publicly accessible directory (i.e, not inside of WEB-INF). The most natural location would be the directory where the JSP containing the applet is located, but that's not mandatory.

All jar files that the appet needs must be listed in the "archive" attribute of the applet tag.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
