The installation and configuration of Sun JavaTM Enterprise System for a distributed enterprise application requires the planning and coordination of many tasks and procedures. During the deployment design phase, you create an installation plan based on the high-level deployment architecture that provides installation and configuration information needed to install Java Enterprise System software.
Highlights of this installation plan include:
Determining the sequence and type of installation
Surveying hosts for previously installed software and installation readiness
Gathering configuration information for each Java Enterprise System component you are installing
The Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Planning Guide provides details on how to gather information for an installation plan. The Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Reference for UNIX provides detailed configuration information and worksheets you can use to document this information. The Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Guide for UNIX provides guidance on common installation scenarios that involve multiple Java Enterprise System components. For more information, refer to Chapter 1, Preparing for Installation, in Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Guide for UNIX.
