Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installation Guide for UNIX


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

Note –

If you are using this component with Sun Cluster software, you must perform a precise series of tasks before installing any components. Refer to Sun Cluster Software Example to see Sun Cluster guidelines.

ProcedureTo Develop a Sequence for Application Server

The following high-level tasks are required:

  1. Running the Java ES installer

  2. At component selection, choosing Application Server

    Message Queue is 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 desired. If you want to use Apache web server, Apache web server must already be installed. Web Server will also be installed. At the Application Server installation page, choose between Web Server and Apache. Supply the path to the web server.

  3. Resolving incompatibilities

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

  4. Verifying installation directories

  5. Selecting the Configure Now or Configure Later option

    1. For the Configure Now option, configuration pages are displayed for the local 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 2005Q4 Installation Reference.

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

  6. Running the installation

  7. Viewing the Installation Summary and Log

  8. Completing post-install configuration
