This section explains some basic requirements and concepts you should review before proceeding with Sun GlassFish Web Space Server 10.0 software installation.
See Software and Hardware Requirements in Sun GlassFish Web Space Server 10.0 Installation Guide for system requirements.
Throughout these installation instructions, the root Web Space Server installation directory is referred to as <webspace_dir>.
When you unzip a core Web Space Server bundle (which looks similar to webspace-<version>-for-glassfish.zip), you get webspace-for-glassfish directory. You can install and configure Web Space Server from this directory. This directory is denoted by <webspace_dir>.
The instructions and examples in this document use UNIX-style forward slash (/) path separators in file and command names. If Web Space Server and Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server are installed on a Windows system, be sure to use backslashes (\) instead of forward slashes; for example:
UNIX systems or Linux systems — glassfish/bin/asadmin
Windows systems — glassfish\bin\asadmin
