You can use the GlassFish ESB command-line installation script to perform a complete custom installation silently. A silent installation means that you will not interact with the Installer, nor will you see the process unless you open the directory to which you are installing.
This process uses the state file you generated and customized earlier.
GlassFish ESB does not support spaces in the installation directory path.
Plan your installation by reading Planning for GlassFish ESB Installation, which contains information necessary for you to complete a successful installation of GlassFish ESB such as supported platforms, operating system limitations, and parameter definitions.
Install the JDK software and set JAVA_HOME. For more information, see Installing the JDK Software and Setting JAVA_HOME
Generate and customize the state file. For more information, see Generating the State File for Silent Installations.
Navigate to the directory where you downloaded the installation executable file.
Run the installation file from the command line with the --silent and --state options, specifying where the state file is located.
glassfishesb-v2.1-full-installer-windows.exe --silent --state C:\glassfishesb\state.xml
GlassFish ESB is installed in the directory you specified.
A log file is generated in your home directory under /.glassfishesb-v2.1-full-installer-hostname_date/log so you can track the progress of the installation. For Windows, this file is located in \Documents and Settings\user_name.
