Pull updates to clients
(Total: 0.00 h)
Devise a scheme by which a client will pull updates from the repository (e.g., "phone home") when the repository version of the code is newer than the local version.
- A client program is asked to launch
- It runs a Java program that returns the date of the newest version of the code
- It compares this date against the date of the local version of the code
- The client will download the new version in the background and (somehow) launch this new version of the code "later". (Note that a Display cannot ask the user for advice on this. The ChannelSelector can, though.)
