2.2.3 To Start GlassFish Server Using the Command Line

To start GlassFish Server from the command line, open a terminal window or command prompt and execute the following:

asadmin start-domain --verbose

A domain is a set of one or more GlassFish Server instances managed by one administration server. The following elements are associated with a domain:

  • The GlassFish Server port number: The default is 8080.

  • The administration server's port number: The default is 4848.

  • An administration user name and password: The default user name is admin, and by default no password is required.

You specify these values when you install GlassFish Server. The examples in this tutorial assume that you chose the default ports as well as the default user name and lack of password.

With no arguments, the start-domain command initiates the default domain, which is domain1. The --verbose flag causes all logging and debugging output to appear on the terminal window or command prompt. The output also goes into the server log, which is located in domain-dir/logs/server.log.
