Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Guide for UNIX

How Java ES Reporter Works

Java ES Reporter is a command-line utility that performs anonymous product registration after a successful interactive Java ES installation session. Immediately after the Java ES components are installed, the Reporter installation starts. On the command line, you are prompted to enter the URL or IP address of a proxy that Reporter will use to access Sun through the internet. The installation proceeds silently and no further action is required.

If you do not want to install Reporter, you can specify the -noreporter option to the installer command when you start the Java ES installation session. To install only Reporter (after using the –noreporter option, or after a silent Java ES installation), there is another option available (-reporter) on UNIX platforms. The Reporter options for the Java ES installer are explained in installer or install Command.

After Reporter is installed, you can enable or disable Reporter by editing a configuration file. These instructions are contained in Java ES Reporter Postinstallation Configuration.

Because Reporter is not a Java ES component of the installer, it cannot be uninstalled using the Java ES uninstaller. Instructions for uninstalling Reporter are contained in Uninstalling Java ES Reporter.
