Write your own update center module

Posted by manveen on September 21, 2007 at 4:05 PM PDT

An Update Center module can be an addon module or an archive module. For an archive type module, the addons.* interfaces need not be implemented. Let's take a closer look at the addon module.

Take a look at my earlier blogs on creating and
testing UC addon modules for starters...

For addon modules, you need to look at the Configurator and Installer APIs.... Here's the package tree.

There were several recent additions to Update Center including Apache Roller. If you ever wanted to know how we did that, here is the code for roller.

Hope this will get you excited enough and started on your own module! Send me your comments.
