Amazon EC2 OpenSolaris 200805-91 AMI Image with Glassfish V2 and MySQL 5.1 based on ami-89ef0be0 MySQL 5.1.x AMI image , origin is OpenSolaris 2008.05-91 ami-41e70328 image.

MySQL use for data /export/home/data2, I will use it for Glassfish installation too, so I can build a persistent storage solution (EBS) using this Glassfish and MySQL image.

Prepare Java 6 Environment

By default only Java 6 JRE is installed on OpenSolaris 200805-91, but we need JDK, we also need MySQL JDBC drivers.

  1. Check installed Galssfish V2 U2
cd /export/home/data2/glassfish
./bin/asadmin start-domain domain1
Starting Domain domain1, please wait.
Log redirected to /export/home/data2/glassfish/domains/domain1/logs/server.log.
Redirecting output to /export/home/data2/glassfish/domains/domain1/logs/server.log
Domain domain1 is ready to receive client requests. Additional services are being started in background.
Domain [domain1] is running [Sun Java System Application Server 9.1_02 (build b04-fcs)] with
its configuration and logs at: [/export/home/data2/glassfish/domains].
Admin Console is available at [https://localhost:4848].
Use the same port [4848] for "asadmin" commands.
User web applications are available at these URLs:
[http://localhost:8080 https://localhost:8181 ].
Following web-contexts are available:
[/web1  /__wstx-services ].
Standard JMX Clients (like JConsole) can connect to JMXServiceURL:
[service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://domU-12-31-39-00-88-61.compute-1.internal:8686/jmxrmi] for domain management purposes.
Domain listens on at least following ports for connections:
[8080 8181 4848 3700 3820 3920 8686 ].
Domain does not support application server clusters and other standalone instances.
