Generating Eclipse Help from existing HTML Documentation

Creating a Eclipse Help bundle for the Eclipse IDE is simple. You only need three things:

  • Some HTML content (one or several pages)
  • A specific XML file describing the “Table of content” (a toc file)
  • An entry to contribute to the org.eclipse.help.toc extension point.

If you do not know how to start, you can use the “Plug-in with sample help content” template when you create you new plug-in Project.
