Gyrex/Administrator Guide/Software Installation
Gyrex supports installation of software into a running cluster. The implementation is based in p2 - the standard for software installation of OSGi bundles at Eclipse. Please make yourself familiar with p2 concepts.
In order to install software, you need to produce a p2 repository containing the artifacts to install. Repositories are the source of installation. In Gyrex, everything is installed from a repository. However, Gyrex does not know about any repositories by default. Therefore you need to configure the list of available repositories.
Configure Repositories using the Console
In the OSGi console a
sw command is available which allows to perform a basic administration and handling of software installations.
