If you ordered a Sun Solaris hardware system with preloaded software, the installation image for the Java ES software has already been copied to your system. If Java ES software is preloaded on a host, the following directory exists:
The architecture variable indicates the system’s hardware architecture, such as, SPARC or x86.
You will need to expand the installation image and use the Java ES installer to install and configure the preloaded Java ES software as described in this manual. Some Java ES components are bundled with the Solaris OS and will be present on the host. In this case, the installer presents an option of upgrading these components. For more information, refer to How Upgrading Works.
If your preloaded Java ES software is on a Solaris 10 system, refer to Solaris 10 Zones Examples before expanding the installation image.
