Chapter 17. Patch Console Commands

download PDF
The patch commands allow you to download, install, and manage patches.
Patches contain a discreet set of bundles intended to update a standalone container. Each patch includes the following metadata:
  • the patch name
  • a description of the patch
  • the list of bundles included in the patch
The basic procedure applying a patch is:
  1. You receive a notice from customer support that a patch is available.
  2. Using the URL provided by customer support, you download the patch using the patch:add command.
    This command downloads an archive file, unzips the archive, and puts the relevant JAR files under the container's system/ directory. The patch does not overwrite any of the existing JAR files and the patch is not actually installed until you run the patch:install command.
  3. You install the patch using the patch:install command.
  4. If you notice that the patch is causing issues, you can remove it using the patch:rollback command.
These commands are not suitable for use with containers that are part of a fabric. They are only for use in applying patches to standalone containers.
Type patch: then press Tab at the prompt to view the available commands.
