|Packaging and Delivering Software With the Image Packaging System in Oracle Solaris 11.1 Oracle Solaris 11.1 Information Library|
Oracle Solaris is delivered by a set of packages, with each group of packages constrained by an incorporation.
Each incorporation roughly represents the organization that developed each group of packages, though there are some cross-incorporation dependencies within the packages themselves. The following incorporation packages are in Oracle Solaris (pkg list *incorporation):
pkg:/consolidation/SunVTS/SunVTS-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/X/X-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/admin/admin-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/cacao/cacao-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/cde/cde-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/cns/cns-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/dbtg/dbtg-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/desktop/desktop-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/desktop/gnome-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/gfx/gfx-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/install/install-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/ips/ips-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/java/java-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/jdmk/jdmk-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/l10n/l10n-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/ldoms/ldoms-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/man/man-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/nspg/nspg-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/nvidia/nvidia-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/osnet/osnet-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/sfw/sfw-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/sic_team/sic_team-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/solaris_re/solaris_re-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/sunpro/sunpro-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/ub_javavm/ub_javavm-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/userland/userland-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/vpanels/vpanels-incorporation pkg:/consolidation/xvm/xvm-incorporation
Each of these incorporations includes the following information:
Dependencies of type incorporate, sometimes with variant.arch variants to denote dependencies that are specific to a given architecture. See incorporate Dependency and Mutually Exclusive Software Components for more information about incorporate dependencies and variant.arch variants.
A license action to ensure that a license is displayed when the incorporation is installed. See License Actions for more information about license actions.
Each package delivered on the system contains a require dependency on one of these incorporations. See require Dependency for more information.
Oracle Solaris also includes a special incorporation named entire. The entire incorporation constrains all other incorporations to the same build by including both require and incorporate dependencies on each incorporation package. In this way, the entire incorporation defines a software surface such that all packages are upgraded as a single group.
