Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Guide for UNIX


Application Server requires a local copy of HADB, Java DB, and Message Queue. If you are using load balancing, a local copy of a web server is required.

ProcedureTo Develop a Sequence for Application Server

The following high-level tasks are required:

  1. Checking the installation sequence guidelines

    Check to see what sequence guidelines apply. Refer to Table 2–1.

  2. Checking the installation prerequisites

    Check to see what installation prerequisites apply. Refer to Table 1–3.

  3. Running the Java ES installer

  4. At component selection, choosing Application Server

    Message Queue, HADB, and Java DB are automatically selected. The Load Balancing Plugin and the Application Server Node Agent are not selected.

    (Optional) If you are going to implement load balancing, expand Application Server and select the Load Balancing Plugin subcomponent. Select Web Server if you want to install Web Server in the same session. If you want to use Web Server 6.0 or Apache Web Server, Web Server 6.0 or Apache Web Server must already be installed.

  5. Resolving incompatibilities

    The installer verifies software on your host and provides guidance if incompatibilities are identified.

  6. Verifying installation directories

  7. Selecting the Configure Now or Configure Later type

    1. For the Configure Now type, configuration pages are displayed for the local product components that can be configured during installation.

      Gather your Application Server configuration information from the tables in Application Server Configuration Information in Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Reference for UNIX.

    2. For the Configure Later type, configuration pages are not displayed.

  8. Running the installation

  9. Viewing the Installation Summary and Log

  10. Completing postinstallation configuration

  11. Starting Application Server (automatically starts Message Queue)

    The following table contains additional Application Server information.
