    As a first step to begin modifying the WebHelp search functionality, I tried rebuilding the %AppData%SoftQuadXMetaL SharedDITA_OTdemowebhelplibxm_webhelp.jar file without modifying any of its .java files:

    • GenerateWebhelpTask.java
    • GetTempDirTask.java

    Unfortunately, the rebuilt xm_webhelp.jar file doesn't work correctly, as the original does. I used Eclipse with JRE7 (and I also tried it with JRE6), along with the requisite packages:

    • %AppData%SoftQuadXMetaL SharedDITA_OTlibdost.jar
    • %AppData%SoftQuadXMetaL SharedDITA_OTtoolsantlibant.jar

    I have attached the original xm_webhelp.jar file which ships with XMetaL 7. Could someone verify whether its .java files are up to date? If they are, any thoughts on why the rebuilt .jar file fails or are there any special settings required to build it correctly in Eclipse?

    We've just retested this here with the following and don't see any issues:
     Eclipse SDK Version: 3.5.2 Build id: M20100211-1343
     Compiler РJRE 1.5 compliance level

    Perhaps you can detail what exactly is going wrong with what you have built?

    Hi, Derek.

    The build doesn't work with JRE compliance levels 1.7 and 1.6, but it does work with level 1.5. Thanks!
