- User-initiated update with Eclipse update manager
- Application Manager in Lotus Expeditor
If you have access rights (either as an administrator or a user) to initiate new feature installation and update, you can click File > Application > Install to open the Install/Update menu and start a feature update process. If you have not been enabled to perform this task, this menu sequence is not visible. If updates to your features are available, and you are so prompted, you can choose to accept the download or cancel. If you accept the download and install, and you are so prompted, you can choose to restart the client immediately after install or wait a deferred amount of time.
For information about enabling this option, which is disabled by default, refer to the topic "Enabling user-initiated update" in the IBM® Lotus® Domino® Administrator help at http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/domhelp/v8r0/index.jsp
. For information on using this option refer to "Installing or updating features" in the Notes client help at http://infocenters.lotus.com/help7/topic/com.ibm.notes85.help.doc/doc/fram_install_update_features_t.html
User-initiated update with Eclipse update manager
To allow users to install or update custom or third-party Eclipse™ features and plug-ins into an existing IBM® Lotus® Notes® installation, you can enable display of the Eclipse update manager user interface. By default, the Eclipse update manager (EUM) is not displayed. You can enable the EUM using either IBM® Lotus® Domino® desktop policy or an Eclipse preference. For more information, refer to http://infocenters.lotus.com/help7/topic/com.ibm.help.domino.admin.doc/DOC/H_ENABLING_USER_INITIATED_UPDATE_FOR_NOTES_8_STANDARD_3064_OVER.html
: This Eclipse update manager (EUM) method, which requires user-initiated install and update for deploying plug-ins to an existing client installation, has been superseded by the client management process available with widgets and the centrally managed widget catalog. That process is described in the topic "Deploying and managing client plug-ins with widgets and the widget catalog" in the Domino Administrator help. It is not suggested that you use EUM to deploy and manage plug-ins. Instead, deploy plug-ins to clients using a centrally managed widget catalog method.
Application Manager in Lotus Expeditor
As mentioned earlier, you can use the Lotus Expeditor Application Manager to check for updates if the CA.XML does not need to be updated. Refer to the "Updating applications" topic in the Using Lotus Expeditor Client portion of the help (http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/ledoc/v6r11/topic/com.ibm.pvc.runtime.doc.user/tasks/user_device_updating_apps.html
) This method, however, can bring down versions of updates for features and plugins that are not consistent with the CA.XML, which can result in your composite application not working.
