      Description

      In GF there is a nice upgrade button.

      Pressing this button should propose to upgrade to latest available glassfish
      version automaticall :

      Proposed scenario is :

      • press the "upgrade" button
      • display a list of possible upgrade choices : nigtly / build / milestone / release
      • user chose and then upgrade process is applied
      • server restart and voilà

      The upgrade process should be transparent and keep the admin settings and the
      applications deployed, etc...

      This would ease upgrade for GF users and would be a very appreciated feature.

        Bobby, given the availability of the update center capability in GlassFish v3,
        is this feature request tracking anything anymore? Or can this be marked as fixed?

        Eventually we need words that are more distinct than 'upgrade' and 'update'
        Technically speaking, 'upgrade' refers to an installation upgrading an older
        domain to itself. 'Update' refers to updating the server bits (everything the
        end user didn't do) to a newer version.

        Looks like this button should invoke the update center. After an installation is
        updated, simply starting it will upgrade the existing domain to work with the
        app server. I don't see this button in either 2.1 or 3.0, so as far as I can
        tell we don't need this issue anymore as the update center handles any task up*
        task that a server could kick off itself.

        That last sentence didn't come out right after submitting. Another take:

        "...don't need this issue anymore as the update center handles any
        upgrade/update task that a server could kick off itself."

        I can't see that this is still tracking anything, so am closing the issue.
