Authoring Updates

The two basic components of an update are the update binary (or binaries) and the update metadata file. The binary is the update executable, and a given update may include one or more update binaries. The update metadata file is an XML document that contains basic information about the update as well as when and how to install the update.

For information about creating update binaries, see the following topic:
