Upgrader 1.0.0b released - Add software upgrade capability

January 30, 2009,
Raleigh, NC.

We are pleased to announce the first public release of the Upgrader Tool. This is an Beta release to give users a preview of the system.

Upgrader is a simple Java-based tool that enables applications developers to add software upgrade capability into their applications. An upgrade process typically involves replacing the old version of the binaries with new version of the binaries and performing data upgrades. It may also need to perform changes to the directory structure. The data upgrade outlined above may involve changes to the configuration files and/or database changes if the application uses a database. This tool provides framework using which application developers can keep track of changes to the application. Every time, there is a change in the database schema or configuration files, the application developers can create a "patch" script and add it to the "patch list". The Upgrader tool may be bundled with the application and is typically invoked during the installation/upgrade. When it is invoked, it determines the current patch level of the system, determines the patch scripts that are needed to be executed, sequence the patch scripts and apply them. For more details, see the project home page - http://www.cafesip.org/projects/common/upgrader/ .... read more

Source Code is now in the Sourceforge Subversion Repository

March 26, 2007,
Raleigh, NC.

We are pleased to announce that we have checked in the source code for all the CafeSip projects into the Sourceforge Subversion repository.

In the last few months we have received a number of requests from developers who want to contribute to the CafeSip projects. In order to bring them in as contributors, we have switched to the Subversion facility provided by Sourceforge. This will make it easier for contributors and other developers to check out the latest code instead of having to wait for a release and it will also make our job easier as far as incorporating contributed code to the software releases. We would like to thank Sourceforge for this great resource that they have made available at no cost.... read more
