Oracle GlassFish Server 3.0.1 Administration Guide

Update Tool

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

Two distributions are supported for GlassFish Server: the Web Profile and the Full Platform. 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 by selecting the comparable Full Platform 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 GlassFish Server, see Oracle GlassFish Server 3.0.1 Upgrade Guide.
