Hi,

how would you implement a help-system in a Swing-based application only relying on the standard Sun-API without using external frameworks or libraries?
My first idea was writing some html-files and loading them into a JEditorPane.

Is there any better Sun-API or other approach accomplishing this ?

Kind regars,
Andy

You can try writing questions and answers and putting them as "K" and "V" in a Map

Does JavaHelp count as "standard Sun API"?

The project assignment for the "Sun Certified Java Developer"- exam says: "... you must use exclusively the Java 2 platform."
JavaHelp would be a good thing, but I don't think, this is part of the Java 2 platform, rather an extension to be downloaded separately.
