GlassFish v3 - UpdateCenter Module 101
By alexismp on Aug 28, 2008
With GlassFish v3, we're moving from a home-grown packaging and update mechanism used today in GlassFish v2 to IPS. Jim has a detailed write-up about how to build an update center module for GlassFish v3.
Jim covers setting up the tools if you're not using OpenSolaris, module configuration (there is no file format and packaging per say), setting up a repository, and browsing existing repositories (simply point your browser to the magic URL).
The objective for the GlassFish Update Center remains the same - easily expose your software add-ons and updates to both internal of external users (4+ Million GlassFish downloads a year).
