Help contexts are added by using the org.eclipse.help.contexts extension point. Contexts are usually specified by using a separate help plug-in, making it easier to switch help content for various languages. The context extension specifies the path of a separate XML file where the data is stored:

   <extension point="org.eclipse.help.contexts">
      <contexts
         file="help_contexts.xml"
         plugin="org.eclipse.faq.examples">
      </contexts>
   </extension>

The contexts file includes a description for each context and can, optionally, add links to HTML help content files in the plug-in. See the help documentation for more details on the format of help context files.
