OpenDS in pkg(5) Format Using the UC2 Toolkit: An Experiment

Updated March 9, 2009

The Update Center 2 Toolkit project is demonstrating how the Image Packaging System, also known as the pkg(5) System, can deliver the following features for multi-platform layered applications:

  • Multi-OS platform packaging of packages and updates
  • Pre-installed installation images
  • Ongoing installation image management
  • Network repository-based delivery of add-ons and updates 
  • Desktop notification of updates and new add-ons

This article describes the results of the first of several experiments intended to demonstrate how projects' build environments can be enhanced to deliver pkg(5)-based distributions. In this article we address the first stage of an experiment based on the popular OpenDS project.

Update:  As of late 2009, building the pkg(5) form of delivering OpenDS is available in the official OpenDS source tree and is documented on the OpenDS wiki.   After satisfying a couple of dependencies, you can build the packages and download bundle image straight from the official OpenDS source.  See the document Build and Use OpenDS in pkg(5) Format for details.
