Using Markers to Specify Context Plug-ins in Eclipse Help

You can specify Eclipse Help context plug-ins by using Context Plugin markers in your source documents. Obtain the context plug-in IDs you need to specify for your source document groups from your development team. ePublisher places the context plug-ins you specify in your source documents in the plugin.xml file generated for each source document group you have in your project. The Eclipse developers use the context plug-ins defined in plugin.xml files to call your Eclipse Help system as appropriate from Eclipse plug-ins.

To enable specifying context plug-ins for Eclipse Help systems, you need to enable the Context Plugin marker. By default, ePublisher sets the Marker type option for a marker named Context Plugin to Context Plugin. You can create a marker with a different name and set the Marker type option for that marker to Context Plugin.

Then, writers can use this marker in the source documents to define context plug-in IDs for each of the source document groups in their project. Context plug-in IDs must follow these guidelines:
