Online Help migration from Adobe RoboHelpv8 to AEM ?

Avatar

Level 1

Does Adobe Experience Manager facilitate the development of online help? If yes, how?

Otherwise,

Can we integrate Adobe Robohelp v8 generated webhelp content with Adobe CQ5 (Adobe Experience Manager)? If Yes, How?

Our current Online Help system is on Microsoft CMS, which has to be migrated on to newly implemented Adobe CQ5 CMS. Can any one help me, with the procedure ?

 

Thanks Alot

Out of the box -- CQ does not have a feature that lets you upload a ROBOHELP project and convert it to a CQ project. You have 2 choices:

1 - manually copy over the content to CQ. Built the project file structure and copy the content to CQ. We have done that for smaller projects. 

2 - build a tool using CQ and Java and OSGi services that can copy over the HTML files and build out the content that you want. This would be custom services with custom OSGi bundles. However - that is one of the strengths of the CQ platform. The ability to customize it with custom services. 

Hope this helps.

Yes -- we at Adobe use CQ for online help. All of the AEM documentation is CQ for example. However - to do so - you have to setup you file structure to meet your own business needs. For example -- you can setup a structure such as help/en/<project name>.... Here is an example to get you started:

What is nice is when you want to update a topic  - you can modify one file and push it live by Activating it. This is so much better than rebuilding your entire project using ROBOHELP and then redploying all help files to the server. 

Hope this helps.
