Title (EN) PUSH DEPLOYMENT OF SOFTWARE PACKAGES USING NOTIFICATION TRANSPORTS
(FR) MISE EN PLACE PAR TELECHARGEMENT DES PROGICIELS AVEC UTILISATION DE TRANSPORTS DE NOTIFICATION
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method for deploying one or more software packages (18) over a communications interface (1). A push trigger (10) is sent to a server computer (2). In response to the trigger (10), the server computer (2) generates a notification package (12, 13, 14). The notification package (12, 13, 14) is sent over the communications interface (1) to at least one client computer (2). Each client computer (2) contains at least one notification transport (15, 16, 17) which recognizes a corresponding notification package (12, 13, 14). The notification transport (15, 16, 17) then instructs the server computer (2) to automatically push the software package (18) to the client computer (4) over the communications interface (1). E-mail transport (15), UNC transport (16), and opportunistic transport (17) are described.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif permettant de mettre en place un ou plusieurs progiciels (18) via une interface de communications (1). Un déclenchement de téléchargement (10) est envoyé à un ordinateur serveur (2). En réaction au déclenchement (10), l'ordinateur serveur (2) génère un paquet de notification (12, 13, 14). Ce paquet de notification (12, 13, 14) est envoyé via l'interface de communications à l'un au moins des ordinateurs clients (2). Chaque ordinateur client (2) contient au moins un transport de notification (15, 16, 17) qui reconnaît un paquet de notification correspondant (12, 13, 14). Le transport de notification (15, 16, 17) commande à l'ordinateur serveur (2) de télécharger automatiquement le progiciel (18) dans l'ordinateur client (4) via l'interface de communications. L'invention concerne également un transport de type E-mail (15), un transport de type UNC (16) et un transport opportuniste (17).
