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

http://glassfish.java.net/downloads/3.1.1-final.html

unzip the file into /opt

3.) Follow this to start your domain.

4.) Once you’ve started the domain:

http://YourServer:8080/

Admin Console

http://YourServer:4848

To Setup as service:
(Borrowed from Here: https://blogs.oracle.com/foo/entry/how_to_run_glassfish_v3)
Save following as “glassfish” in the /etc/init.d/
chmod +x glassfish
update-rc.d glassfish defaults

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

GLASSFISH_HOME=${GLASSFISH_HOME:-"/opt/glassfishv3/glassfish"}

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