Software updates in the ICONPARC E-Business B2B Framework
When developing or revising a module or feature, the developer begins with its coding. The coding can be paused at any time if several people are working in parallel. As soon as the development work is done, the system automatically identifies all changes and saves them as a so-called software feature. This software feature bundles all related code changes, graphics, database adjustments, etc. into one package. In order to use the software feature on a staging or live system, the developer only has to perform a few steps in the migration wizard: All the necessary changes are then applied to the target system - precisely with the necessary sub-steps and in the correct order.
This system is extremely efficient and robust.
