Creating IPS Packages - Part I: Overview


Alexis has started a new series to document / encourage more IPS packages for our GFv3-based repository. The first post introduces the packaging and repository concepts and provides links to a number of entry points like the UpdateCenter2 and GlassFish-Repo projects.

Alexis's next post will use as an example the existing hibernate package in the v3 repository; then he will document how to create these packages for frameworks, Java EE applications, standalone applications, and GlassFish extensions. Check them out and let us know how the whole experience works for you; our goal is to improve the process.

BTW, if you point your browser to the IPS repositories above you will get back some statistical data. Don't read much into it, though; the stats relates to the data serviced by this instance of the IPS server since the last restart. But (a) we restart very often to pick up new packages, and (b) we have multiple instances of the server for load-balancing purposes.

So, my suggestion is that you ignore those numbers :-(
