Unpackages a physical package file into the specified path.

Syntax and Description

ips unpack file file_name [into path]

file_name is the full path name of the physical package (zip file) to unpack. Optionally, you can unpack the file into directory path, which must exist and be writable. If you omit the path, the current working directory is used. The destination directory is treated as an ADR base, and the entire ADR base directory hierarchy is created, including a valid ADR home.

This command does not require an ADR home to be set before you can use it.
