The Java ES installer is an installation framework that uses the Solaris pkgadd, Linux rpm, or HP-UX swinstall utility to transfer Java ES software to your system. You can install Java ES interactively or by means of a reusable script.
Graphical Mode (Interactive). Provides an interactive graphical wizard that leads you through the tasks of installing the Java ES software on a graphical workstation.
Text-based Mode (Interactive). Provides the same functionality as that of graphical mode, but you are prompted for responses on a line-by-line basis in a terminal window.
Silent Mode. Provides the ability to run the installer on multiple hosts, using a generated state file to specify input.
You can run the Java ES installer without installing software. This is useful for surveying existing Java ES software on your hosts.
