Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Guide for UNIX

Requirements and Sequence Issues

Application Server requires a local copy of HADB, Java DB, and Message Queue. Application Server and HADB must be on the same host so you can use the integrated management tools provided by Application Server. The Load Balancing Plugin subcomponent of Application Server requires a web server.

The general tasks include:

  1. Installing the Java ES product components

  2. Starting the servers

  3. Configuring HADB

  4. Configuring load balancing

You can use the following guidelines to install all product components on a node or zone. On subsequent nodes, install the product components required by your deployment. A minimum of two installation sessions are required.

ProcedureTo Develop a Sequence for Web and Application Services

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. Verifying that the hardware is connected correctly for your cluster

  4. Running the Java ES installer

  5. At component selection, choosing Application Server

    Message Queue, HADB, Java DB, and all the subcomponents of Application Server except the Application Server Node Agent and Load Balancing Plugin are automatically selected.

  6. Expanding the Application Server product component and selecting Load Balancing Plugin.

    Note –

    You must install Web Server and Load Balancing Plug-in using the same file system access permissions.

  7. Resolving incompatibilities

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

  8. Selecting the Configure Now type

    Message Queue requires no configuration.

    The configuration pages are displayed for product components that can be configured during installation. Gather your configuration information from the table in HADB Configuration Information in Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Reference for UNIX.

  9. Running the installation

  10. Viewing the Installation Summary and Log

  11. Starting the product components:

  12. Completing HADB postinstallation configuration

    Refer to Configuring HADB After a Configure Later Installation.

  13. Completing load balancing configuration

    Refer to the Chapter 5, Configuring HTTP Load Balancing, in Sun Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition 8.2 High Availability Administration Guide.
