OVSD 4.5 - Add progress bar to "Update All"

Hello,

I think that "Update All" is one of the most used functionalities offered by OVSD. Certainly SD administrators use it all the time.

Don't you hate that no progress bar is displayed when you are doing an update? Especially in case of massive updates the only indication we got from OVSD is an hour glass.

Well, no more!

Just add the attached jar in front of your classpath in your client settings. Every time you'll do an "Update all" a progress indicator will show you the progress of the process.

I tested many times and it works like a charm however no guarantees are given that this will work to your environment or the sky won't fall on your heads! Use it at your own risk!

...but I think you 'll gona love it!

Personally I have no problem. I don't know however how HP would feel. In order to being able to write the patches I did ehmm... a little reverse engineering :)

Hello George,

What is the properly name of this file?, when I download the name is 295510.jar.

Another questiong, what is the classpath?

Thanks

You can name it whateveryoulike.jar. But you have to modify sd_client.ini to inlcude that name as the first thing after jview /cp

Could you by any chance make one for views and forms as well? ;-)

Some of our views and some forms with a lot of history lines take a long time to open.

Hi George,

thanks for this one also. It works as expected (SP 24). It is a real help in running updates.

The greatly enhanced "Update All" functionality is finally here: http://www.skolnik.info/sdutils/multiupdate/readme.html

It allows you to do the "Update All" but instead of constant you can use other attributes' values. It also contains progress bar as in George's implementation although done in much different place.

I forgot that you also can use functions in the same way you use them in Data Update function in DB Rules. Here's the thread with announcement so that you can send feedback and suggestions: https://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1180410
