Oracle GlassFish Server 3.0.1 Administration Guide

ProcedureTo Update All Installed Components in an Image

GlassFish Server enables you to maintain multiple installation images on a single system. When you update an installation image, all the components that are present in that image are updated to new versions, if new versions are available. When you install updated versions of components, only those files that have been modified are downloaded and installed. Files that have been removed in the updated package are removed during the update process.

  1. Stop GlassFish Server.

    See To Stop a Domain.

  2. To ensure that the pkg command can locate the application image, change to the base installation directory for GlassFish Server.

    cd as-install

    The base installation directory for GlassFish Server.

  3. Install all packages for the image.

    pkg image-update

    Information similar to the following is displayed:
