Server Package Builds

Well Known Member
JDE List,

When we build an update package tied to a parent package do the specs on the
server (under the parent package library) get merged during the build
process or only once the package has been deployed?

The reason I ask is because we were building an update package (client and
server) and the parent package was giving us fits so we built the package
against an "older" parent package. We don't need the parent package any
more but we need the updates in the client.

Does this make sense? Can anyone tell me if I am okay doing it this way
(only a stop-gap measure until we get the server package fixed).

Thanks,

Memo from Martin Stutchbury of PricewaterhouseCoopers

Just a thought.

When you build and update package, it does update the specs in the parent
package (i.e. merges them).

What it doesn't do (at least under B73.3.2), is recreate the CAB files. *IF*
the CAB files exist (e.g. from a previous
full package build and compression), the installation will install from the CAB
files which DO NOT contain the new specs.

Two work arounds:
1) Delete the cab files and the install will use the spec files (not
recommended because it will really hit your network hard)
2) From package build history, reset the status of the package compression, and
resubmit the build.

Just a thought. Not sure if it applies to your situation without more info.

Cheers

Martin
