Software Package Builder (SPB) provides a visual method to create and edit software packages using the HP-UX Software Distributor (SD-UX) package format. Once software is packaged, it can easily be transferred to a distribution medium, mass produced, and installed by administrators. The SPB graphical user interface (GUI) provides a window into the software package structure, showing attributes that can be set for each package element.
SPB loads packaging policies and validates software package attributes against these policies. The SPB command line interface (CLI) can also perform validation of software package attributes against policies and can be added to an automated process for editing and validation of a PSF.
Whether you are new to software packaging or an experienced packager, SPB can help you.
