Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v3 Administration Guide

Update Tool

Enterprise Server provides a set of image packaging system (IPS) tools for updating software on a deployed Enterprise Server. Typical updates include new releases of Enterprise Server, and new or revised releases of Enterprise Server add-on components or modules.

Two distributions are supported for GlassFish Enterprise Server v3: the Web Profile and the Full Platform Profile. After installation, you can view the modules on your system by using the graphical Update Tool or the pkg command.

Note –

If you chose the Web Profile, you can change to the Full Platform Profile by selecting the comparable Full Platform Profile package in Update Tool. All dependent modules are automatically added.

You can add and delete individual modules from a distribution, but such configurations are not supported.

If you need information on upgrading your domain configuration data to work with a new version of Enterprise Server, see Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v3 Upgrade Guide.
