Issue description
We propose to create a new sample/demo which will upgrade any node running on a Windows machine such that, after the upgrade, they can execute .Net jobs and tasks.

What needs to be done:
  • use an execution policy to select Windows nodes and filter out those who are already .Net capable. The policy should be stored as an XML file that users can easily modify
  • use a broadcast job using this policy, to execute a Java task on the nodes to upgrade
  • the job would use a data provider whcih stores all the files that must be added: dlls, jar files and addtional config files
  • the task would use this data provider to store the files at the proper location in the node's distribution, modify the existing config file, and finally perform a deferred restart of the node
  • the task would also send JMX notifications of the upgrade status (at least start/end, with successfull completion or failure status)
