Paul Withers has released a new version 2.0.2 of his project XPages Help Application (short URL:

Paul describes the 2.0 functionality in his blog and on the project page:


XPages Help Application is an application for managing online Help [...]. It is roughly based on the Notes/Domino Help, Eclipse Help and iNotes Help. It provides functionality for navigating the help by: Contents: a hierarchical multi-level navigation. Index: like the index of a book, allowing entries to be listed under one or more index categories. Search: a full-text search of the content. Bookmarks: allows users to add or remove bookmarks to their personal profile. This is only available for logged-on users.


The project is also a good learning resource since it uses themes, Java managed beans and an implementation of the OpenLog Java class specifically designed for use in managed beans (more).

Paul has also produced a video describing the application:
