After developing your application and generating a deployment package that contains the bundles to be deployed (refer to the Programming section for more information), you may install it on the gateway using the Packages option in the System area of the ESF Gateway Administration Console as shown below.
Upon a successful installation, and after clicking on the Refresh button, the new component appears in the Services list (shown as the Heater example in these screen captures). Its configuration may be modified according to the defined parameters as shown the Heater display that follows.
ESF allows the installation and update of running applications via the Eclipse Kura Marketplace.
The Packages page has, in the top part of the page a section dedicated to the Eclipse Kura Marketplace, as shown in the image below:
Dragging an application reference taken from the Eclipse Kura Marketplace to the specific area of the ESF Web Administrative Console will instruct ESF to download and install the corresponding package.
Once the selected application deployment package (dp) file is installed, it will be listed in the Packages page and detailed with the name of the deployment package, the version and the signature status.
The value of the signature field can be true if all the bundles contained in the deployment package are digitally signed, or false if at least one of the bundles is not signed.
