How can I create a new package for the Nuxeo Marketplace?
It's very easy. Follow the documentation for package creation and submit it to the Nuxeo Marketplace. When the packages are approved, they will be available for installation in a Nuxeo product, through the Update feature of the Admin Center.
Are packages from the Nuxeo Marketplace supported? How?
Packages can have several support levels, and the support is indicated on package metadata.
- Supported by Nuxeo: the package is supported by Nuxeo's support team and is included in the Nuxeo Connect subscription.
- Supported by Nuxeo Galaxy Partner: the package is supported by a partner, in the Galaxy program. Support is delivered through Nuxeo Connect Support and may require additional fees.
- Supported by third-party: the package is supported by an SI or other software provider and may be subject to different SLA and pricing. Support is not delivered through Nuxeo Connect Support.
- Not supported: the package is offered "as-is" and is not supported by Nuxeo or any affiliated partner.
What is the typical work load to create packages?
A plug-in already created for Nuxeo EP (or related products), typically will take 1-2 days of integration-type work to package them for Nuxeo Marketplace.
What are the benefits of using a Nuxeo Marketplace package compared to a bare plug-in?
Packages are sets of plug-ins for Nuxeo software, with additional resources such as install/upgrade/uninstall scripts, descriptions, license, graphics, etc.
Packages are not replacements for plugins, but instead a container for plug-ins to ease their installation and update. We encourage all plug-in creators to package them: it simplifies the provisioning / installation / upgrade significantly.
Can we offer packages for a fee?
Not at the moment. We are working on this feature so that our Nuxeo Galaxy App Builder partners will be able to offer paid apps to users of Nuxeo products. This feature and pricing details should be available before the general release, scheduled for late September 2010.
If you are interested in beta-testing this feature and giving us feedback, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How are packages approved?
The Nuxeo Connect team performs a technical review of the package. They check that new packages are not causing obvious / intended damages on target systems and that there is no obvious negative impact (especially on performance, security, features, etc.).
Disclaimer: customers must validate packages on their own system and assess they are not causing damage on their installed system before going to production and putting any data at risk.
As a System Integrator, can I use the Software Update feature of the Admin Center to deliver updates (of specific code) to my customers?
Yes. We have designed Software Update to support this use case. Nuxeo Galaxy SI partners will be able to deliver updates easily to their customers for custom projects, just as AppBuilders do for public packages.
If you are interested in beta testing this feature, please contact us at email@example.com.
My servers don't have access to the Internet, can I benefit from the Update feature of the Admin Center?
The Software Update feature of the Admin Center has been designed to work offline when servers can't access the Nuxeo Marketplace. If you are interested to beta test this feature, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nuxeo Marketplace is Nuxeo's application store for ECM plugins and feature extensions. These packages are created by Nuxeo developers and Galaxy partners and are available to subscribers to Nuxeo Connect.
Application administrators can access the list of available packages via the Nuxeo Admin Center, and benefit from easy update and install features.
