Description alvinsw 2005-07-14 11:55:29 UTC
Help -> Help Contents
The IDE Help window is shown but the content is empty.
I have the Index list, but cannot click any of them.
Cannot search as well.
I installed Mobility pack and Nokia Developer Suite before I noticed the error.
Comment 1 Martin Ryzl 2005-07-15 22:53:21 UTC
This is not a bug in the IDE but in NDS. NDS 3.0 comes with own version of
javahelp (Spec version 1.0, Impl. version 1.1.3) and adds it on classpath in
manifest of NDS_Adapter_NetBeans.jar. It seems they need access to jh api. It
causes clash with default NetBeans javahelp. Correct solution would be Nokia
module depending on org-netbeans-modules-javahelp.jar as it has in
public packages. I'm afraid there is no workaround or hotfix other than fix on
Nokia side. Also other 3rd party modules may cause such problem.
Comment 2 Martin Ryzl 2005-09-26 11:02:04 UTC
Here is a workaround:
1. find nokia/modules/NDS_Adapter_NetBeans.jar in netbeans installation directory.
2. update the manifest file - patch is attached. Note that NDS may be installed
in different location than mine - you may need to upate patch accordingly.

I've already reported the problem to Nokia. Also I'm closing the issue as
WONTFIX because I think there is nothing we can do on our side.
