Glassfish (GMJ) in OpenSolaris JeOS Prototype with Glassfish V2

Filed under: cloud, jeos, opensolaris, virtualbox, Virtualization — natiku @ 5:05 am

OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype is PURE CLI enviroment, so its small true command line only enviroment, as such is ideal install BASE for web services like is Glassfish GMJ = Glassfish MySQL Java.

In this example I will demonstrate use of Glassfish GMJ Glassfish V2, MySql 5.1 , Java 6 (JDK) from PKG OpenSolaris 200906 repository OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype.

General Information – JeOS Prototype OpenSolaris project

Download OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype VM for one 10+ most popular Virtualization Formats:

Part 1: Check JeOS readiness as user root

1. Switch to root

pfexec su - root

2a. Check, if PKG will clean download cache on SUCCESS

root@osol-jeos:~# pkg property flush-content-cache-on-success
PROPERTY                       VALUE
flush-content-cache-on-success True

2b. Check, then we increase PKG download patience for slowest networks

root@osol-jeos:~# set | grep PKG

2c. Check, then we use right main repository for

root@osol-jeos:~# pkg publisher
PUBLISHER                             TYPE     STATUS   URI          (preferred)  origin   online
contrib                               origin   online

2d. Check, then we can access these repositories

root@osol-jeos:~# pkg refresh --full

2e. Check, download speed of whole repository catalog

root@osol-jeos:~# curl >/dev/null
% Total    % Received % Xferd  Average Speed   Time    Time     Time  Current
Dload  Upload   Total   Spent    Left  Speed
100 1333k  100 1333k    0     0  93491      0  0:00:14  0:00:14 --:--:--  126k

2f. Check, if we have enough memory and activated swap (I recommend if possible to have VM with 768MB-1GB RAM configured)

root@osol-jeos:~# top | grep Memory
Memory: 1024M phys mem, 525M free mem, 512M total swap, 512M free swap

2g. Check, if you have enough disk space in host, in case then you use a growing Virtual disk Format

At least 2GB of disk space is needed

Part2: Install GLassfish GMJ on OpenSolaris JeOS Prototype

!Glassfish in OpenSoalris 200906 is version V2 and it requires a full JDK6 installation (Which is forced by iPKG dependencies, but one download size can be too large for Virtual Environemnts)

1. Installing full JDK 6 in smaller download chunks

root@osol-jeos:/~# pkg install SUNWj6rt
DOWNLOAD                                    PKGS       FILES     XFER (MB)
Completed                                    1/1     686/686   31.77/31.77

Install Phase                                880/880
Deleting content cache

Next install Java Dev

root@osol-jeos:/~# pkg install SUNWj6dev

Install Phase                                351/351
Deleting content cache

Next install rest of Java packages

root@osol-jeos:/~# pkg install SUNWj6dmo SUNWj6dmx SUNWj6rtx SUNWj6dvx SUNWj6man SUNWj6cfg
DOWNLOAD                                    PKGS       FILES     XFER (MB)

You need Japanese localization too 🙂

root@osol-jeos:~# pkg install SUNWj6jmp

Install Phase                                  25/25
Deleting content cache

Don’t forget to add MySQL Connector/J to container JAR PATH

root@osol-jeos:~# pkg contents -m  SUNWmysql5jdbc | grep ".jar" | awk '{print $7}'

Note: If you will like to use instead a latest MySQL Connector/J 5.1 , get jar at MySQL Connector/J 5.1 {5.1.10}

3. Installing Glassfish V2 package

3a. You can install it as iPKG package

root@osol-jeos:~# pkg install -nv glassfishv2
Creating Plan | Before evaluation:

After evaluation:
None -> pkg:/glassfishv2@0.5.11,5.11-0.111:20090518T202021Z
None -> pkg:/web/glassfish-2@2.1,5.11-0.111:20090518T202027Z
None -> pkg:/SUNWjavadb@,5.11-0.111:20090508T161155Z
None -> pkg:/SUNWant@1.7.1,5.11-0.111:20090508T153048Z
None -> pkg:/service/network/message-queue-41@4.1,5.11-0.111:20090508T165024Z

restart_fmri: svc:/system/manifest-import:default


root@osol-jeos:~# pkg install glassfishv2
web/glassfish-2 1/6 0/4456 0.00/94.85C
