Smalltalk and ObjectStudio
have enabled us to build a true small-business framework which we can reutilize and tailor for each new customer context.

PRESENTATION: Patching Smalltalk at Runtime – David Buck

It’s not always possible to re-package and re-deploy a Smalltalk application – especially when you have thousands of users distributed in many locations.  In this talk, David presents some techniques he’s used successfully for providing patches to VisualWorks and VASmalltalk applications.  These patching techniques offer a way to fix bugs by distributing small files.  Depending on the application, it may be possible to download the patches automatically and dynamically without the users even being aware that a patch was installed.
