Patch Console Commands

patch:add — download a patch file from a remote location and places the relevant JAR files in the container's system directory
patch:install — installs a patch that was previously downloaded
patch:list — lists all known patches, showing the patch name and status (installed or not)
patch:rollback — reverses a patch installation
patch:simulate — logs all of the actions that would be performed during a patch install, without actually performing the install

The patch commands allow you to download, install, and manage patches.

Patches contain a discreet set of bundles intended to update a standalone container. Each patch includes the following metadata:

  • the patch name

  • a description of the patch

  • the list of bundles included in the patch

The basic procedure applying a patch is:

  1. You receive a notice from customer support that a patch is available.

  2. Using the URL provided by customer support, you download the patch using the patch:add command.

    This command downloads an archive file, unzips the archive, and puts the relevant JAR files under the container's system/ directory. The patch does not overwrite any of the existing JAR files and the patch is not actually installed until you run the patch:install command.

  3. You install the patch using the patch:install command.

  4. If you notice that the patch is causing issues, you can remove it using the patch:rollback command.

These commands are not suitable for use with containers that are part of a fabric. They are only for use in applying patches to standalone containers.
