Package org.eclipse.help.browser Description
Provides interfaces that need to be implemented by web browser adapters.
Base Help System, requires web browser to display help document. Since
availability of web browsers differ from system to system, it is possible
to configure browser adapters in addition to ones provided with the base.
The browser (or browser adapter) can be configured by
providing extension for org.eclipse.help.base.browser
If more than one browser is available on a user system, the default browser
can be designated in Help preference page.
In general terms, implementing a web browser involves:
Implementing standalone UI element having the IBrowser API, and
capable of displaying HTML documents given a URL.
Providing a factory for managing of browsers on a particular system, by
implementing IBrowserFactory interface.
Declaring an extension of the org.eclipse.help.base.browser extension
point that mentions the name of that factory class.
Note that browser factory will be created on every system. If the
factory is not capable of creating a browser on some system configurations,
due to missing prerequisites e.t.c., its isAvailable()
should be returning false on these systems.
