    Looking round the OTN for solaris article I noticed the following page on IPS Packaging:

    I noticed the following 'how-to' guide entitled: How to Create and Publish Packages to an IPS Repository on Oracle Solaris 11

    Which covering the following fours steps:

    Building the source code.
    Creating a manifest for your IPS package
    Setting up an IPS repository
    Publishing the package to the repository.
