Updating a sequence
This allows the Soft Grid server to manage applications independently of their filenames or content.On the Soft Grid client, the machine and user settings for each application are managed by the SFT GUID, allowing settings to be managed at the same level.The Shortcut Wizard is then re-run, reconfirming that the application still works in Soft Grid. The sequencer will recognize that this package is an update and append an underscore and an increment number to the SFT files (e.g., EXAMPLEAPP. Next, the Soft Grid administrator adds a new Package version into the Soft Grid Management Console, referencing the new SFT file.
The sequencer user then simply restarts the Monitoring process in the sequencer, and once monitoring restarts, the user performs any updates to the application as necessary.The primary consideration for this method is that existing machine and user settings will not be available in the new version since the two SFT files have different GUIDs.It may be possible to programmatically transfer the settings between the two applications but the management of those settings is not automatically transferred.The primary consideration for this method is that both the existing version and new version cannot be served to users simultaneously.The user will always get the latest version upon application launch.
