Oracle Help Release 5.0 includes many features that help you create and manage help systems for your application. In the current release, Oracle Help includes Oracle Help for Java Release 5.0, Oracle Help for the Web – UIX Release 5.0, and Oracle Help for the Web – Rich Client Release 5.0. Oracle Help Release 5.0 also supports Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (5.1).

looks and functions like the familiar tri-pane (menu toolbar, navigator, topic view) design of native help systems, similar to Oracle Help for Java.
has a better Index navigator, which provides scrolling instead of paging, supports incremental search.
enables users to view the current navigator and the current topic at the same time.
Quick search and bookmarking support
Support for Custom Protocol Links or xlinks
Support for Embedded Help
Usage as an inline Help provider for applications built on Oracle ADF
Other enhancements include:
Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle JDeveloper support for OHW-UIX and OHW-RC
Debug mode in OHW-UIX and OHW-RC that indicates how many malformed helpsets were skipped while running the application
