The Java ES installer is an installation framework that uses the Solaris pkgadd or Linux rpm 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 option 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 creating state files for a silent installation or for surveying Java ES software on your existing hosts.
