The Beast is here.

Oracle Solaris 11 Express is a big change for Solaris, particularly in:

To help you manage it, we've assembled the following resources:

You can find these links in a tidy package on OTN's Solaris 11 Express Product Page:

How about access to source code?

You have a link "The way you patch it" which leads to a page "Oracle Solaris 11 Express Image Packaging System Guide."

Is package management the new way to patch in Solaris 11?

Hi guys. Sorry for the delay in responding. I'll look into these questions and respond in a bit ...

To Bob: regarding your question "Is package management the new way to patch in Solaris 11?"

Yes, it is. Patching essentially goes away. Check out this interview with Dave Miner, the architect of the packaging system: http://medianetwork.oracle.com/media/show/15647

To 195.124.178.100: regarding your question, "how about updates from Solaris 11 Express support repository? Any howtos about it?"

If you want to be notified when updates become available, use the Update Manager. Here are the docs: http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/820-6572/update_mgr?l=all&a=view

To obtain updates between major releases, you need to have a support contract. Once you have that contract, follow the instructions for getting a certificate that lets you download updates from the repository.

If you don't want to buy a support contract yet, you'll have to wait for the next major release of the product.

The site where you go to get the package updates certificate is: https://pkg-register.oracle.com/

Remember, though, you can't do this without a support contract.

Will we have an alternative command for patchadd etc related to patching ? or Patches have been discarded from now on ?
