Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installation Guide for UNIX

Evaluation Example

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.

ProcedureTo Develop a Sequence for Java ES Evaluation

The following high-level tasks are required:

  1. Starting the Java ES graphical installer

  2. Checking the installation prerequisites

  3. 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.

  4. Verifying installation directories

  5. Selecting the Configure Now option

    Messages indicate which components cannot be configured during installation.

  6. 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.

  7. Viewing the Installation Summary and Log

  8. Completing post-install configuration

    Chapter 6, Configuring Components After Installation contains instructions for post-install configuration.

  9. Starting the components

    Verifying After Post-Installation Configuration contains the preferred Java ES startup sequence. Startup procedures follow the table.

    Note –

    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.
