B4J Question Help for B4J application - what's the best solution ?

I've been looking around B4J forums - but was unable to find good example of
help system (offline) for B4J application. Or nowadays everyone prefer to use
just URL's to online help files ? By application quite small - but I still would like to
keep offline help files option - distributed within application jar file.
What would be the best practice - could you please share your experience ?

for small apps developed, I make use a help solution using a class with a form containing a single webview.
The webview loads a HTML file located in the DirApp folder. When loading the HTML file an anchor can be optionally passed as a parameter.

Attached an example project.
