Instructions to unbundle and configure GlassFish Server Open Source Edition

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 UR1 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 Server, see the Quick Start Guide.

See Configuring the Cluster/Load Balancer with GlassFish Open Source Edition 2.11 for how to do the load balancing after creating Clusters on GlassFish Open Source Edition 2.1.1.
