New for LiveCycle Workbench 9.5 is the ability to provide you with the latest help dynamically in a manner similar to Adobe Flash Builder Help, which many of you already know and love! How? The Adobe Community Help Client (CHC), that’s how! The CHC is an AIR-based application that replaces the Eclipse Help engine for Workbench and is the platform for the next generation of Adobe Help delivery. CHC features include the following features:
- Search-centricity : Uses Community Help search, adobe.com search, or local search. Community Help search aggregates resources, including those from 3rd party sites. The adobe.com search includes refinements to narrow your scope.
- In-context navigation: Provides a dynamically generated set of related links for key pages.
- In-context commenting: Provides immediate feedback on any page and displays any recent updates.
- Always online: If you have a network connection, the CHC accesses content from the web to ensure that you have the most up-to-date content. However, you can also work in local mode if you have no Internet connection.
Now you are probably wondering, how do you work in local mode? Well, provided you have internet access, you can download a copy of the Help so that you can access the Help if your internet connection fails or if you are temporarily working behind a restricted firewall. To download a local copy of the Help, follow these steps:
- Start Workbench ES2.
- Select Help > Adobe LiveCycle Workbench Help. The Adobe Community Help Client starts and you do not get a prompt that asks to you download the help, continue to step 4. If you do, the help is downloaded after you click update and you should have a local copy when do not have internet access.
- In the Adobe Community Help Client, select Edit > Preferences.
- In the left pane, select Download Preferences.
- Select LiveCycle ES2.5. The LiveCycle Workbench 9.5 Help should be selected automatically as shown in the following illustration:
- In the left pane, select Local Content, select LiveCycle Workbench 9.5 Help, and click Update. After the update, your window should look like the following illustration:
- Click Done.
You now have a local copy of the Help! The next time you connect to the internet, the Help will be updated when a user selects starts the Workbench Help. If you do not have an internet connection, Workbench connects to the local copy.
Note: The PDF version is not available unless you are connected to the internet. If you want, you can save a local copy of the PDF version on your computer, when you have internet access.
Available on Adobe Labs is the prerelease of the Archive Migration Tool. The plug-in is available for LiveCycle Workbench ES2 (version 9 and higher). Check out the tool here.
In a nutshell, this tool migrates archive files from the LiveCycle ES to LiveCycle ES2 or LiveCycle ES2.5 applications. Without this tool, it is necessary for you to manually upgrade your LiveCycle ES applications. For more information about upgrading legacy soutions, see Upgrading legacy solutions to LiveCycle ES2.5 in the LiveCycle Workbench 9.5 Help.
