Screenshot of iManager Plugin Installer
Now the iManager plugin installer can install any plugins irrespective of platform on which iManager is running. There has been problem with iManager 2.5 and 2.6 versions w.r.t installing and uninstalling the plugins on different platforms. Most of the time plugins were not uninstalled completely leaving them in the hanging state and thus preventing reinstalling those plugins. Then the user has to manually install/uninstall the plugins which is more tedious task since the user has to manually copy the right files at the right location in iManager.
This tool has been written to resolve the above mentioned problems and make the job of installing/uninstalling plugins smoother. Even for the first time, this tool makes it easy to install the plugins rather than doing it from iManager. If you have problem in uninstalling the plugins, then just install the new version of plugin using this tool. All old files will be replaced with new ones automatically.
Note that you have to manually start and stop the Tomcat server, when you are installing plugins for non Windows platform such as NetWare, Linux etc. For windows, it will be automatically done by this tool.
How to use this application
Here are the simple steps to install the plugins using this tool.
perl sys:/tomcat/4/bin/catalina.pl sys:/tomcat/4 stop
perl sys:/tomcat/4/bin/catalina.pl sys:/tomcat/4 start
