Update Tool is now embedded in the Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v3 Prelude Administration Console. This tool provides automated updates, and facilitates managing add-on components and related applications that are available for extending Enterprise Server v3 Prelude functions.
The Administration Console provides access to the Update Tool page through the navigation tree. The Update Tool page provides tabs to display the following:
Components that are installed
Updates that are available for installed components
Add-on components that are available and can be installed
Integration of Update Tool in Administration Console enables administrators to extend and update Enterprise Server without the need to launch a standalone version of Update Tool by using the updatetool command.
The Update Tool is developed through the Update Center project. The Administration Console uses the Update Center 2.0 API to display a list of available components, versions and dates. For information about Update Center 2.0, see the Release Notes for Update Center 2.0 .
