Delivering Sun JavaHelp
You can provide a help system in Sun JavaHelp format either as a collection of individual files or in a single, compressed Java archive .jar file. A .jar file, similar to a .zip file, compresses and stores a collection of files.
When you generate output for your project, ePublisher creates the Output folder in your project folder, and then creates a folder in the Output folder for each generated target. Then, ePublisher creates a folder named for the project itself in the target folder. For example, when you generate output, ePublisher creates the following folder structure:
<Project Area>\<Project Name>\Output\<Target Name>\<Project Name>
In this folder structure, <Project Area> is the name of the ePublisher component you are using, such as ePublisher Express, <Project Name> is the name of your ePublisher project, and <Target Name> is the name of your ePublisher target, such as JavaHelp. To deliver your Sun JavaHelp generated output, you can provide the complete contents of the <Target Name>\<Project Name> folder to your Java application developers, and they can determine whether to deliver the .jar file or the individual files to application users.
