XDSA defines a software packaging layout, a set of information maintained about software, and a set of utility programs to manipulate that software and information
Description

Details

This specification is based on the IEEE 1387.2 Software Administration standard and establishes industry-wide acceptance of an approach to software administration in both stand-alone and distributed environments. XDSA defines a software packaging layout, a set of information maintained about software, and a set of utility programs to manipulate that software and information. It extends the IEEE standard by adding significant functionality to deliver enhanced update and patch facilities. Like the IEEE standard, XDSA specifies distributed operations without specifying the mechanism for how it is to be achieved.
