Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installation Planning Guide

The Installer is Local

The Java ES installer installs component software on one computer at a time. For most solutions, this means the installer runs more than once. The installation plan must indicate how many times to run the installer. This section describe how to analyze a deployment architecture and determine how many times the installer is run to install and configure a solution.

A few solutions are installed on one computer only, and the installation plans for these solutions provide procedures for running the installer runs only once. The solutions that require running the installer only once are the following:

Most solutions are distributed across several computers. Installation plans for these solutions must describe running the installer multiple times to install and configure the complete solution. To analyze these solutions, use the following guidelines:

The purpose of this section is to introduce the idea that installation plans must sometimes describe running the installer and the configuration wizards on one computer, or running the installer multiple times on one computer. For more information on the actual installation procedures for different component combinations, see Developing an Installation Plan.
