Abstract

The invention relates to the embedded software field, in particular to a configurable software unitization upgrading method aiming at digital television set-top boxes. The invention puts forward a configurable, flexible, efficient and safe software on-line upgrading method. The method comprises the following steps that: a. upgradeable software and data having fixed storage addresses are marked into individual unit modules, and module configuration information is established for each unit module and stored on a terminal; b. the upgrading data and configuration information of all the unit modules needing to be upgraded are packaged to generate upgrade files and configuration files; c. a code stream generation tool is used to form code streams of the upgrade files and configuration files and send the code streams out; d. the terminal downloads the configuration files to judge which modules are needed for upgrading the terminal, and then downloads the upgrade files of the modules needing to be upgraded so as to carry out upgrading. The upgrading method is flexible in upgrade, high in efficiency, good in safety and suitable for the upgrade of embedded software.

Description

Configurable software unit upgrade method
Technical field
The present invention relates to field of embedded software, relate in particular to a kind of configurable software blocking upgrade method at digital TV set-top box.
Background technology
Continuous development along with digital television, digital cable customers quantity also significantly rises, digital television business also obtains flourish, content and function are more and more, the module composition of embedded set top box software is also enriched constantly, on the other hand, because the variation of function, it is more and more huger that the set-top box software size also becomes, and upgrades to seem frequent and complicated.During upgrading at digital TV set box software, the online upgrading cost is minimum, and is most effective, and this also is the unique upgrading mode voluntarily of terminal user.In traditional online upgrading method, escalation process need be downloaded whole application program and resource data, and whole application partition is rewritten.Such upgrade method not only needs to check the correctness of all functions, has also produced redundant output simultaneously, makes whole upgrade process to become and is quite time consuming, also the bandwidth consumed resource.
Summary of the invention
Technical matters to be solved by this invention is: propose a kind of configurable, flexibly, efficiently, safety on-line software updating method.
The technical scheme that the present invention solves the problems of the technologies described above employing is: configurable software unit upgrade method may further comprise the steps:
A. will have fixedly that the upgradeable software of storage address becomes single independently unit module with Data Labels, and set up module configuration information, these information will be kept on the terminating machine for each unit module;
B. embedded front end is packed the more new data of all unit modules that need upgrade to merge and is generated upgrade file, and the configuration information of all the unit module correspondences that need upgrade is packed to merge generates configuration file;
C. with the code stream Core Generator upgrade file and the configuration file formation code stream that generates in the above-mentioned steps sent;
D. terminating machine download configuration file at first judges this machine needs which module of upgrading really, and downloading needs the upgrade file of the module upgraded to upgrade again.
Among the described step a, the configuration information of each unit module correspondence comprises the index of module, version, size, check code, is suitable for the type coupling, filtercondition and other indicate the information of described module feature.
Among the described step b, configuration file comprises number and these modules configured information that needs the upgrading software unit module.
Among the described step b, be provided with the level of security code of this upgrading in the configuration file.
The invention has the beneficial effects as follows: have configurability, make that upgrading is more flexible; Can remove simultaneously module redundant in the upgrade data, save the network bandwidth, make that upgrading efficient is higher; Increased the level of security code, made that upgrading is safer.
Embodiment
The invention will be further described below in conjunction with embodiment.
Configurable software blocking upgrade method among the present invention has following feature with respect to traditional embedded software upgrade method:
(1) it is independent to be placed on the upgradeable software and the data of fixed address, forms unit module one by one, and this is the basis of this upgrade method, can delete redundant upgrade data, and conserve network bandwidth makes that upgrading efficient is higher.
(2) all be provided with configuration information for each unit module, comprise index, version, size, level of security and other information of module.These information can make the renewal of software and management become more convenient and clear.
(3) the level of security code in configuration information can effectively be protected the safety of data of the sensitizing range of this machine, has only the level of security code of respective modules in configuration file to be greater than or equal to this machine, and the upgrading of this module just is allowed to carry out.
Embodiment:
On concrete enforcement, for example: producer or operator (embedded front end) are according to depositing the fixed address of software and data with independent unit module 1, unit module 2, unit module 3, unit module 4, the unit module 5 of identifying into of upgradeable software of needs and data.And go out the configuration information of these each independent unit module correspondences by software identification, configuration information comprise these unit modules version, size, level of security, filtercondition, be suitable for information such as type coupling, these configuration informations are kept on user's the terminating machine.Producer or operator think have only unit module 1, when unit module 3, unit module 4 needs upgrading, just use strapping tool that the more new data of unit module 1, unit module 3, unit module 4 is merged the generation upgrade file, and the configuration information of these unit module correspondences is merged the generation configuration file.Afterwards, use code stream Core Generator generation upgrading code stream to pass in the network upgrade file and configuration file.When user's terminating machine needs upgrade software, can earlier configuration file be downloaded to get off to resolve, judge according to the configuration information in the configuration file whether upgrade file is applicable to the software upgrading of this machine.If be suitable for, just continue to resolve the renewal data message that configuration file obtains each unit module in the upgrade file, and mate corresponding unit module 1 in this machine, unit module 3, the version of unit module 4, check respectively more whether the level of security in these module configuration informations meets the requirements, if version and level of security all meet the requirements, just download the unit module 1 of needs upgrading according to the filtercondition in these module configuration informations, unit module 3, the more new data of unit module 4 is to corresponding storage area, and upgrade these modules configured information on this machine, finish software upgrading, and to other unit module 2 on this machine, unit module 5 is not upgraded, and has saved update time and bandwidth.

Claims (4)

1. configurable software unit upgrade method is characterized in that: may further comprise the steps:
A. will have fixedly that the upgradeable software of storage address becomes single independently unit module with Data Labels, and set up module configuration information, these information will be kept on the terminating machine for each unit module;
B. embedded front end is packed the more new data of all unit modules that need upgrade to merge and is generated upgrade file, and the configuration information of all the unit module correspondences that need upgrade is packed to merge generates configuration file;
C. with the code stream Core Generator upgrade file and the configuration file formation code stream that generates in the above-mentioned steps sent;
D. terminating machine download configuration file at first judges this machine needs which module of upgrading really, and downloading needs the upgrade file of the module upgraded to upgrade again.
