 Description  « Hide

Unlike the v2 version of the updatecenter, the v3 version does not support
post-install or pre-remove processing.

While many of the functions that would require this can now be handled with OSGi
(with proper versioning), some cannot - for instance, modification of domain.xml.

Without support for this feature, the updatetool is simply a file delivery
mechanism, not an update mechanism.

I've spoken to the updatecenter2 team, and they tell me that this is a product
specific feature, and they will not be providing this functionality.

This is not a bug it is an enhancement request. The user is requesting
functionality never intended for the tool.

Apologies for the confusion - this should actually be filed under "other" or
"admin" since it has to do with addon configuration functionality and not with
GF upgrade tool.

Moving to more appropriate subcategory and assigning to Sreeni.

Bulk update to change fix version to "not determined" for all issues still open but with a fix version for a released version.
