Glassfish Ubuntu 12.04 Ubber Quick Install Guide

This is an ubber ubber short install guide we came up with to get Glassfish on a virtual server for testing:

Make sure you have at least 512 memory free!

1.) Install java
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

2.) Get GlassFish ZIP file

unzip the file into /opt

3.) Follow this to start your domain.

4.) Once you’ve started the domain:


Admin Console


To Setup as service:
(Borrowed from Here:
Save following as “glassfish” in the /etc/init.d/
chmod +x glassfish
update-rc.d glassfish defaults

# glassfish init script for Linux
# Simplest possible case -- no password file, one default domain
# it would be simple to add such options


case "$1" in
$GLASSFISH_HOME/bin/asadmin start-domain >/dev/null
$GLASSFISH_HOME/bin/asadmin stop-domain >/dev/null
$GLASSFISH_HOME/bin/asadmin restart-domain >/dev/null
echo "usage: $0 (start|stop|restart|help)"

Customer Love

I have had the pleasure of working with Jeremy on several innovative projects. With each experience, I was continually impressed with Jeremy’s ability to interpret requirements, translate them into a technical application, and deliver solutions on time and on budget. On many occasions, Jeremy demonstrated his acumen in researching technical approaches and developing innovative solutions. He is a highly skilled data mining and word press expert. Most impressive is Jeremy’s ability to consult on a wide variety of technologies with ease and ability to speak to the business challenges and solutions in a concise and substantive manner. He has always been a pleasure to work with maintaining a positive demeanor and responsiveness to customer needs. I’m happy to give my highest recommendation to Jeremy
