The Siebel Packager utility allows the Siebel administrator to rollout Siebel application configurations and customizations to mobile and dedicated clients. Siebel Packager assembles the Siebel client executable program and other installed files, including your custom configuration, into a customized installation package.
Siebel administrators can use these installation packages when installing Siebel eBusiness Applications for the first time or when upgrading from previous versions. Optionally, you can package the Siebel client installation as a single, self-extracting archive file.
CAUTION: Do not use Packager for Siebel maintenance releases. Packager is designed for use with full releases. It does not include the necessary functionality to install a Siebel release that depends on the existence of a previous release.
For details on the process of rolling out customizations using the Siebel Packager utility, see Process of Rolling Out Updates to Mobile and Dedicated Clients.
After the Siebel client installation has been packaged, the package can be distributed to your users in several ways. For details, see Making Your Customized Installer Available to End Users.
