Installing the IBM WebSphere Help System plug-in: Network Deployment (All Operating Systems)


1. First: you must download the IBM Eclipse Help System (IEHS) from http://www.alphaworks.ibm.com/tech/iehs

once logged in you are taken to: https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/reg/download.do?source=AW-0M5&S_PKG=0M5&lang=en_US&cp=UTF-8


2. Download IBM Eclipse Help System to view the information center offline. The WebSphere help system plugin can be downloaded from:
http://www-01.ibm.com/software/webservers/appserv/was/library/v61/ndss/index.html

3. Install IEHS (IBM Eclipse Help System)

4. Unzip the downloaded ND files

If your help system is installed on the C-drive. Then you would copy the downloaded help files and un-zip them into the "eclipse\plugins" folder/

Note: You will have to move the help folders from the unzipped parent folder into the root of the plugins folder (the default of the zip file is to unzip into it's own folder, the actual folders we want are inside this folder so we have to move them into the eclipse\plugins)

for example:

C:\IBM-Help-Win32-341\ibm_help\eclipse\plugins

Result:

Here is a sample of local help content being loaded.
