Redesign update service

Description

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.

Is this ticket still valid? I think that we planned to remove the update service with 4.0.

We should probably discuss if we are OK with the current deployment model or if we need any kind of automatic updating service.

  • Milestone HeuristicLab 4.0 deleted
  • Resolution set to obsolete
  • Status changed from new to closed

Update service has been dead for a long time (I think the last working versions early 3.3.x versions).

I'm closing this ticket as we effectively decided against the update service. Refactoring of the plugin infrastructure is now tracked in ticket #2522.
