Promoted builds are weekly builds of GlassFish which have passed a minimum level of testing which includes the quicklook tests, a sub-set of CTS tests (representative collection of 344 J2EE 1.4 tests) and a sub-set of SQE tests (22 in number). A build is not promoted unless it passes all quicklook, CTS smoke and SQE smoke tests.

Instructions to unbundle and configure GlassFish

To install and configure GlassFish you need to have JDK 5 or JDK 6 installed on your system. The configuration processing depends on Ant (1.6.5).  The bundle includes an Ant distribution that has been extended with tasks to facilitate developing Java EE 5 applications for the application server.

  1. Download one of the bundles to disk, set JAVA_HOME to the JDK you have installed on your system.
  2. Run:
       % java -Xmx256m -jar filename.jar
    This command will unbundle GlassFish and create a new directory structure rooted under a directory named 'glassfish'.
  3.  % cd glassfish
  4. If you are using a machine with an operating system that is a derivative of UNIX(tm), set the execute permission for the Ant binaries that are included with the GlassFish bundle.
    % chmod -R +x lib/ant/bin
    % lib/ant/bin/ant -f setup.xml 
    OR for Windows:
    % lib\ant\bin\ant -f setup.xml 

For GlassFish V2 with Clustering supported installation, just change step 4 from the above installation

% lib/ant/bin/ant -f setup-cluster.xml 
OR  for Windows:
% lib\ant\bin\ant -f setup-cluster.xml 

To get started with GlassFish, see the quick start guide.

See Configuring the Cluster/Load Balancer with GlassFish V2 for how to do the load balancing after creating Clusters on GlassFish V2.
