Product Version: NetBeans IDE 7.4 RC1 (Build 201309152201)
Java: 1.8.0-ea; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.0-b49

Dialog for attaching NetBeans debugger to a remote application does not work.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Launch NetBeans IDE.
2. Invoke "Debug > Attach Debugger..." from the main menu.
3. Press "Help" button.
4. Nothing happens.

Expected: Help window will open displaying help page for the dialog.

Help ID "debug.jpda.attach" is not available.
It's probably missing in the usersguide module.
Reassigning. Ken, can you please evaluate it? Thanks.
Comment 2 Kenneth Ganfield 2013-09-18 15:11:03 UTC
Fixed in core-main.
Topic added and map file updated.
Comment 3 Jiri Kovalsky 2013-10-09 16:37:39 UTC
Well, Help window gets opened in FCS build but it's empty. Any chance to show the corresponding topic?
Comment 4 Kenneth Ganfield 2013-11-08 11:11:02 UTC
The help button currently opens the correct topic in javahelp but link to users guide is currently broken in daily builds.

Am leaving this open until the link to the usersguide is fixed.
Comment 5 Kenneth Ganfield 2013-11-26 14:09:41 UTC
Link to users guide now works.
marking as fixed
