Default UI for Direct Update

When the app receives an update from the MobileFirst Server, it starts downloading the newly deployed resources, as shown in the following figures. If the download fails mid-way, the direct update resumes from where the download was broken the previous time.

The user notifications in the following figures show the default method of implementing Direct Update.

Download of newly deployed resources is available. An Update Is Available dialog opens. Then, an "Unpacking" notice is is hown. The application is automatically reloaded after the update is complete.
