Summary

The user assistance support in Eclipse provides a way to inform and teach users about the user interface. Whether this is from standalone help documentation, if dynamic help is provided depending on the user's context, or the help documentation itself is interactive and allows the Eclipse user interface to be driven, it is possible to allow users to learn about the functionality of the product and allow it to be extended in a customizable way. Cheat sheets provide a set of recipes that can interact with the user allowing the experience to be self-driven, and a consistent set of help pages that offer one of the best documented open source projects.
