Installing Java EE SDK and GlassFish
That’s is the first of a set of few posts that will focus in installing and configuring Eclipse in order to been able to build Dynamic Web Pages with Java EE SDK using Tomcat 7.0, JBoss or GlassFish.
In this first post I’ll focus only in the initial step of downloading and configuring Java EE and Eclipse (Juno).
Java EE SDK – Download
The first thing to do is going to the Java download page:
and select the “Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 SDK Update 4 (with JDK 7u11)” or newer version:
Or directly go to the download page (if that’s the latest version):
Here just accept the license agreement:
and download the file you need.
If you are in windows you will probably need the “Windows” (or “Windows – Multi-Language”) version for a normal Windows 32bit version. If your system is 64bit, then you can decide to go for the x64 versions.
Java EE SDK and GlassFish – Install
When the download is completed, run it and simply follow the instructions, they are quite straightforward.
Some key points are:
- You will want probably to select: “Typical installation“
- Leave the installation directory to the default one: “C:\glassfish3“
- Leave the Install and Enable Update Tool options checked as they are (with no proxy settings)
- Leave it create the default domain (domain1) using a sensible username (“admin”… if it is sensible :)) and possibly a more meaningful password
- If you are prompted by Windows Firewall about allowing access… allow it
Once finished you should be able to go to “localhost:8080” and see the glassfish default page:
That’s really it for it. The next Post will be dedicate to Installing and configuring Eclipse (Juno).
