HCL Commerce Developer Update Package overview

Update Packages for HCL Commerce Version 9 environments are delivered as compressed .pak archive file that contain new and changed files. Update Packages can include code fixes, security fixes, new features, or enhancements.

The following list describes key features of HCL Commerce Developer releases:
  • Delivered as compressed .zip archives, available from HCL License and Delivery portal.
  • Each new Update Package is an accumulation of the previous updates plus new fixes and enhancements. For example, HCL Commerce 9.1.3.0 contains all changes from 9.1.1.0 and 9.1.2.0.
  • An Update Package is the only mechanism that HCL uses to deliver features and fixes. Interim fixes are not provided.
  • HCL intends to release Update Packages monthly, or more frequently if security vulnerabilities are identified. The timing and frequency is not guaranteed and can change without notice at HCL's sole discretion.
  • New features, or enhancements to existing features, that could affect your custom code are disabled by default.
  • Fixes to co-requisite software (WebSphere Application Server and WebSphere Liberty) are your responsibility in the HCL Commerce Developer environment. Ensure that the co-requisite software programs are at the same level as in the Docker containers of the runtime environment.
