Introduction

This tutorial is part of the Developing a Model-View-Controller (MVC) Component for Joomla!2.5 tutorial. You are encouraged to read the previous parts of the tutorial before reading this.

Adding a updateserver definition

To add a updateserver functionality adjust the helloworld.xml to look like this.

helloworld.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

        </updateservers>
 
</extension>

You also need to put a XML-file on your server which contains all update-informations.

helloworld-update.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

You need to add a new update-node every time you publish a new release, as well as for each Joomla! version. (you will need a distinct update node for each targetplatform)
