Use the administrative console to manage the features installed on clients.
After you have registered one or more Eclipse update sites with the Client Management server, you can distribute any feature on the update site to clients. See Registering an Eclipse update site
for information on how to register an Eclipse update site. Features that are part of registered Eclipse update sites are referred to as registered features
There are two ways to view registered features. To view the registered features on a particular update site that has been registered with the Client Management server, select Expeditor Client Management
> Update Sites
in the administrative console and click the name of the update site. To view all registered features from all update sites that have been registered with the Client Management server, select Expeditor Client Management
To perform an action on one or more features, select from the Actions list and click Go
. You can distribute features, enable or disable features, and remove features.
To filter or search views, see Filtering display information
|Feature ID||Specifies the feature ID. Select a Feature ID to display the Feature Details view, which shows additional information about the feature.|
|Name||Specifies the feature name.|
|Version||Specifies the feature version.|
Actions initiated by the Client Management server do not result in a prompt to the end user to restart the platform. It is the responsibility of the administrator to create a client restart task to cause the prompt. You can do this by creating a separate client restart task or by checking the Restart Client
check box when creating a feature-related task. If the administrator fails to cause the client to be restarted, the behavior of new features may not be as expected.
