#9 - A Single Installable Package

Not so long ago, SGD, or Tarantella as it was then, came like a piece of IKEA flatpack furniture.
There were separate installable components for:
  • Base component
  • Windows Connectivity Pack
  • Mainframe Connectivity Pack
  • AS/400 Connectivity Pack
  • Security Pack
...in addition to the separately downloadable Enhancement modules and clients.
And all of these used a special non-standard SHell eXecutable (shx) install mechanism.

So Cool Thing about SGD 4.3 Number 9 is a single Solaris package (pkgadd) or Linux rpm package that contains everything.
One download, one install and away you go. Nice one.
