For devices that read firmware updates from HTTP, TFTP or FTP directories, you can create a settings descriptor file that will be used to generate a web page to upload files for the device and deliver them to the appropriate directory.

Step 1:Declare upload specification

Add a new upload specification to any existing Spring bean file. For example

  <bean id="polycomFirmware"

    <!-- Use upload spring bean -->
    <constructor-arg value="upload"/>

    <!-- Directory to find upload.xml file -->
    <constructor-arg value="wayCool"/>

    <!-- Label -->
    <constructor-arg value="Way Cool Device"/>


Step 2:Describe upload files

Create following file

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE model PUBLIC "-//SIPFoundry//sipXconfig//Model specification 2.0//EN" 
  <group name="firmware">
    <description>Firmware for Way Cool Device</description>
    <setting name="wayCoolFirmware.dat">
      <description>Firmware binary.</description>

The group and setting names and labels are irrelevant, but pick meaningful values incase you need to process the settings.


and multiple upload specification entries in the spring file for 3.0 and 4.0
