      Description

      javahelp seems to be under GNU GPL 2 with CPE and we do use it: http://hg.netbeans.org/releases/file/5fd841261bf9/javahelp/external/jhall-2.0_05-license.txt

      We should either find a drop-in replacement for javahelp or move the help online and open a system browser for each help button click.

      This will break the stable help API used by plugins and Platform apps so we must provide some migration path for those too.

      An idea would be to allow Platform apps to include javahelp themselves instead of relying on it being present in the Platform.
