Ticket #1891 (new feature request)
Redesign update service
|Reported by:||swagner||Owned by:||gkronber|

It turned out that the update service of HeuristicLab 3.3.x has some drawbacks:
- The plugin infrastructure itself cannot be updated. If the plugin infrastructure has to be changed, updating HeuristicLab plugins with the update service will result in an inconsistent state.
- The update service cannot update the application configuration. Therefore it is not possible to add/update the definition of services which are used in plugins (e.g. OKB, Hive).
- Grouping plugins to products is not really useful and was never effectively used in HeuristicLab 3.3.x.
- Working with the plugin administration UI is quite cumbersome. The usability should be improved.
Therefore we should think about a fundamental redesign of the update service for HeuristicLab 3.4.x.
