Auto update patches for WSAS

Afkham Azeez-2
Hi folks,
Will it be a good idea for WSAS to periodically check whether patches
are available and issue an alert? We can host the patches on OxygenTank,
http://wso2.org/wsas/2.2/patches/. This directory can have a patches.xml
file which will give some information regarding the patch, as well as
the relevant patches. If the user decides to apply the patch, WSAS can
itself download this patch to the $WSO2WSAS_HOME/lib/patches directory,
and ask the user to restart the server.

The advantage of this approach is that the users do not have to
constantly be in touch with the mailing lists etc. to find out about
important patches.

We can follow the same approach for the other products such as WSO2 ESB
as well.

Thoughts?

Thanks
Azeez

This is definitely a good suggestion.. however I think its better to
keep such a new feature out from the immediate next releases right now,
and bring it in with the upcoming unification instead?

thanks

+1 for doing this after January releases.

Also, it'll be good to try to do this using an Atom feed as the basic
file format.

Hi Asankha,
The idea was to develop this feature as a COMMONS subproject so that all
the products can make use of it. I created an issue
https://wso2.org/jira/browse/COMMONS-46 to keep track of this.

Thanks
Azeez
