"javax.help doesn't exist"-error

Hello there,
I'm running java on a mac(so I'm using the mac preinstalled java + sdk) and have downloadet javahelp, unpacked it to "/Library/java/home/jh2.0/javahelp" and added ":/Library/Java/Home/jh2.0/javahelp/lib/jh.jar" to CLASSPATH. Also, I have set the JHHOME-Variable to "/Library/Java/Home/jh2.0/javahelp".
Now, as soon as I try "import javax.help.whatever", it says: "package javax.help doesn't exist".
I already searched for older threads handling the same error, but they all seemed to have "Write it into CLASSPATH" as the ultimate solution.
Does anyone have an Idea, why this doesn't seem to work on my machine and how to fix this?
Thank's in anticipation,

    As far as developing I'd add jhall.jar.
    Coming to your problem all I can see is

    Library/*java/home*/ became Library/*Java/Home*.
    Being a unix based OS, could it be case-sensitive or it's just mistyping?

    The jhall.jar did the job, now it works. Thank you very much.
    The case-sensitivity though is not the problem. Although mac is a unix-based system, it's file system handling isn't case-sensitive, it will find the path, no matter if its capitaled or not.
    But the problem's solved.

    Thank you again,
