Thread: Sun Studio 11 Patches/Updates?

  1. Sun Studio 11 Patches/Updates?

    Am I right in thinking that Sun will now be charging $864 for patches
    and updates for Sun Studio 11? I paid $100 for Forte 6 Update 2 with
    Educational pricing back in Feb. 2002 -- maybe I'll just stay with the
    older software for a while.

    no you are wrong. You are getting Sun Studio 11 for free. The price
    for support is $864. The patches are free, too. So you will only
    need to pay support if you are having problems with Sun Studio
    and need support from Sun. Sun Studio 11 even checks for patches
    itself...

    There are no Studio 11 patches yet AFAICT from patchdiag.xref
    and I've not seen any statements that the new Sun Update Connection
    policy for Solaris 10 patches doesn't apply to all new products.

    Does the Studio 11 UI automatically download those patches?

    No, I think it just downloads/generates an HTML file with a list of
    available patches, and launches your browser to load that file. Then, I
    imagine, you can click on the links to download the patches.

    in fact I don't really know, too. I just read it in the release notes,
    and once when I started "analyzer" it said something about checking
    for patches and updating something. It could have been a Solaris
    specific patch.

    On Studio's patch website there are currently only patches concerning
    the different Solaris releases (look here:
    http://developers.sun.com/prodtech/c...1_patches.html).
    I don't know really what was going on. But up to now I didn't have
    any problem with Studio 11 as opposed to 10, which made a lot of
    trouble for me...

    Any word whether Studio 12 and Sun's other multi-OS software products
    will include support for Sun Update Connection?
