I had the same question, and in searching for answers came across a conference scheduled for March 25-28, 2007 with some interesting topics, like:
1. A Introducing Oracle Help 5.0: A Free Help System session by Jeffrey Stephenson of Oracle. The abstract says, "...be the first to hear about Oracle Help 5.0, the latest release of the popular Oracle Help offering, combining Oracle Help for Java (OHJ) and Oracle Help for the Web (OHW)..."
2. A Using Oracle Help 5.0 in a JavaServer Faces Application presentation by Peter Lubbers of Oracle. The abstract says:
"...The help still has the traditional table of contents, keyword index, and full text search index views, but they work better and faster. Oracle Help 5.0 also features a new favorites view, new quick search and document search functionality, as well as improved navigation features. The TOC view in Oracle Help 5.0 has been updated to be available while viewing the individual Help topics, which is something the older versions of Oracle Help did not have..."
Does anyone know more about Oracle Help 5.0?
Oracle Help product is not "desupported".
There will be a new version of OHW based on ADF and JSF rich technology that will be released as part of Oracle 11G offerings.
Hope that helps.
That is correct. We are actively working on the next (Rich Client) version of Oracle Help for the Web (Oracle Help 5.0). Jeff and I gave a preview of this new version at the WritersUA conference last week.
Since most Oracle products use Oracle Help (either Oracle Help for Java or Oracle help for the Web), we are very committed to keep improving this great Help system.
Thanks for the good news. Would be nice if you keep it free of charge :-).
Will there also be a new OHJ release? Or will we always need a web server for Oracle Help 5.0?
The OHJ will be also delivered as part of Oracle Help 5.0 deliverables
Oracle Help 5.0 has now been released. You can find more info here:
