The following sections provide information on deploying updates to composite applications:
General update information
For up-to-date information on application and feature updating, refer to Domino 8.0.1 Administrator Beta Help.
The section "Notes client installation, Smart Upgrade, and Upgrade-by-Mail" contains detailed topics on the application update process and other related subjects.
NSF-based update sites
An update site can be provided in a .NSF file that can be hosted on a Domino server without the need to run the HTTP task. You create the NSF using the "Eclipse Update Site" template. "Updatesite.ntf is the template file and it is listed in the new application dialog under advanced templates. Features or existing update sites can be easily imported into the NSF using the user interface provided.
For related information about using an NSF-based update site in conjunction with composite applications, see at the "NSF based update sites and composite applications" posting at http://www-03.ibm.com/developerworks/blogs/resources/CompApps/NSF_Based_Eclipse_Update_Sites_and_Composite_Applications.pdf.
