"Great tool, worked perfectly and was obvious to use"
By ckamps on Jul 08, 2009
Don't you love it when your project team receives this sort of feedback?
We recently received this quote from a person that was evaluating the soon-to-be-released layered or unbundled pkg(5) form of the Sun GlassFish Web Stack, a commercially supported form of Apache HTTP Server, Tomcat, MySQL and PHP for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Solaris.
Although the Web Stack product has been available in native pkg(5) format as part of the OpenSolaris distribution since OpenSolaris 2008.05 and in native package format on Red Hat Entperise Linux and Solaris since Web Stack 1.4, this new form of the product distribution introduces non-root, relocatable and multiple instance installation support combined with the benefits of pkg(5)-based installation and update management for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Solaris platforms.
After sweating over hundreds of details in what may be perceived as a relatively basic tool, all of the people that contributed to the Update Tool GUI should feel proud of what they've delivered.
Congrats to the Update Center development team for making this experience happen!
