  • Updating an individual bundle within a .plan?

    I apologize in advance for merely adding to the numerous posts already written on this subject, but the lack of this feature would be a real show-stopper for me as far as dm Server 2.0.0 is concerned. In short, my scenario is something like this. I have a .plan containing a few dozen bundles that make up a specific application. For this post, I'll just use a simplified example test.plan:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <plan name="test.plan" version="1.0.0" scoped="false" atomic="false"
            <artifact type="bundle" name="" version="[1.0.0, 2.0.0)"/>
            <artifact type="bundle" name="" version="[1.0.0, 2.0.0)"/>
    Test.plan will start up for the first time with no trouble. The problem arises when I need to push out, for example. I can drop beta-1.0.1 into repository/usr and then use the dm Server ssh console to install beta-1.0.1 and uninstall beta-1.0.0. Down the road, when I need to update test.plan, beta-1.0.1 is left in place since (I'm assuming) the bundle was in no way associated with test.plan. Test.plan will then successfully start alpha-1.0.0, see the newer beta-1.0.1 in the repository, try to install it, and then bail because beta-1.0.1 is already installed:

    Cannot install bundle '' version '1.0.1' as it was installed when bundle '' version '1.0.1' was installed.
    In short, is there ANY way to update an individual bundle within a .plan without having to restart the entire .plan?

    In short, no. ;-)

    You should be able to update a bundle in a plan if you don't change the bundle version, but you'd have to replace the bundle in the repository. But that's not what you want above, which is really refreshing the reference from the plan to the bundle so the later version is selected. Refreshing a plan is not currently supported.

    If you would like to, please raise a user story against dm Server.
