An evaluation installation is generally considered a trial deployment, a quick installation to see how things go. This example uses the graphical interface and the Configure Now option. When you are presented with configuration pages, you accept defaults wherever possible.
This example installs all the Java ES components except Sun Cluster software on a single host in a single installation session. Because Web Server is used as the web container, Application Server is not installed.
The following high-level tasks are required:
Starting the Java ES graphical installer
Checking the installation prerequisites
At component selection, selecting Install All, then deselecting the Application Server and Sun Cluster components
The installer verifies software on your host and provides guidance if incompatibilities are identified.
Verifying installation directories
Selecting the Configure Now option
Messages indicate which components cannot be configured during installation.
Accepting configuration defaults when they are offered
If you want to use non-default information, review the appropriate configuration tables in Chapter 1, Configuration Information, in Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installation Reference.
Viewing the Installation Summary and Log
Completing post-install configuration
Chapter 6, Configuring Components After Installation contains instructions for post-install configuration.
Starting the components
Verifying After Post-Installation Configuration contains the preferred Java ES startup sequence. Startup procedures follow the table.
If you are using a remote component to fulfill dependencies, the remote component must be installed and running before installing any components that depend on it.
