Component Release Files

Included in this example are zip files for four releases. You will need to download all four to exercise the features of this example.

Version 1.0

The zip file can be downloaded from democompupdate_10.zip. It contains files:

  • democompupdate_10/democompupdate.xml
  • democompupdate_10/script.php
  • democompupdate_10/admin/sql/install_data.sql
  • democompupdate_10/admin/sql/uninstall.sql
  • democompupdate_10/admin/sql/updates/1.0.sql
  • democompupdate_10/site/controller.php
  • democompupdate_10/site/democompupdate.php
  • democompupdate_10/site/models/democompupdate.php
  • democompupdate_10/site/views/democompupdate/view.html.php
  • democompupdate_10/site/views/democompupdate/tmpl/default.php

Version 1.0.j3

The zip file can be downloaded from democompupdate_10j3.zip. It is identical to version 1.0, except that is requires Joomla 30.0. The intent is that this will cause an abort of the install or update. Diff's of democompupdate_10 and democompupdate_10j3 show how files have changed.

diff -r democompupdate_10/ democompupdate_10j3/
diff -r democompupdate_10/democompupdate.xml democompupdate_10j3/democompupdate.xml

< <extension type="component" version="1.6" method="new">
---
> <extension type="component" version="30.0" method="new">
diff -r democompupdate_10/script.php democompupdate_10j3/script.php
17c17
<         private $minimum_joomla_release = '1.6.0';    
---
>         private $minimum_joomla_release = '30.0';

< 		// this component does not work with Joomla releases prior to 1.6
---
> 		// this component does not work with Joomla releases prior to 30.0
