Mapping topics in OHW

Hi,

Some of the map file contents are as below:
/*--------*/
<mapID target="target_name" url="target_file.html" />
<mapID target="target_name_1" url="target_file.html#target_name_1" />
<mapID target="target_name_2" url="target_file.html#target_name_2" />
/*--------*/

What is required is, when the URL http://hostname:port/ohw/help/?topic=target_name_1 or http://hostname:port/ohw/help/?topic=target_name_2 is given, the browser page should be displayed from the specified anchor position..

In both IE and Netscape, it is not happening, but, just the file "target_file.html" is displayed starting from the beginning.

But, when the URL http://hostname:port/ohw/help/helpTopic?topic=target_name_1&file=absolute_file_path.html&linkHelp=false#target_name_1 or http://hostname:port/ohw/help/helpTopic?topic=target_name_2&file=absolute_file_path.html&linkHelp=false#target_name_2 is given, the correct desired output is shown. But, then, the page doesn't have the "linkHelp=true" facility, which shows the hyperlink that would allow to go to the Help home page.

Can't we use the URL http://hostname:port/ohw/help/?topic=target_name_1 or http://hostname:port/ohw/help/?topic=target_name_2 to view the desired output, if we correct something in the present map configurations?

We are using the OHW on jakarta-tomcat-3.2.2

Thank you,
Ranjith..

    Hi,

    The hyperlinks generated by the OHW, as specified in the TOC file, does not give the correct output on clicking them. For Netscape, clicking on the hyperlink for the "target_name_1" topic(or "target_name_2"), referred above, navigates to the end of the "target_file.html" page. For the same case in IE, it navigates to the beginning of the "target_file.html" page.
    The same thing, given above, when viewed in the OHJ helpset previewer gives the correct desired output without any problems.
    So, for the OHW map, TOC file do we have to give slightly different configurations?
    Please help..

    Thank you,
    Ranjith..

    P.S: Please read the <, > as less than and greater than signs. Was having problems earlier using such tags ..Sorry..

    Thank you for the reply. Are there any workarounds for this problem..At least if there is something that could be done for the problem mentioned in the second post in this same thread...Otherwise those hyperlinks might confuse a user..
    For the first problem maybe we will have to do with the URL http://hostname:port/ohw/help/helpTopic?topic=target_name_1&file=null&linkHelp=false...

    Thank you,
    Ranjith..
