In addition to a local installation process, you should also consider providing an installation process to enable enterprise distribution. To enable the enterprise installation, you should clearly identify each file that should be installed, and the appropriate installation location.
The client platform provides an Enterprise Management Agent that connects to Tivoli
® Device Manager provided by WebSphere
® Device Manager.
Device Manager provides for software distribution as well as configuration jobs to be applied to the client platform. Tivoli
Device Manager uses bundles as the distribution artifacts for the Enterprise Management Agent.
The update site provided to an administrator for distribution is the same update site that is built for local installation. Therefore, developers can create the same artifacts for enterprise installation as they would create for local installation.
For more information on update sites, refer to the documentation Plug-in Development Environment Guide > Getting Started > Update Sites
