This guide provides instructions for installing JOnAS (with a web container already included) from scratch.
The content is organized into the following steps:
Download the binary version of a J2SE SDK 1.4 from the java Sun web site into the appropriate directory. Launch the executable file:
./j2sdk-1_<version number>-<system>.bin for Unix
./j2sdk-1_<version number>-<system>.sh for Linux
j2sdk-1_<version number>-windows-i586.exe for Windows
Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable and update the path:
export JAVA_HOME=<Installation Directory>
PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH (on Windows : PATH=%JAVA_HOME%/bin;%PATH%)
Download the binary version of Ant 1.6 from the Ant Apache web site. Untar or Unzip it into the appropriate directory:
tar -jxvf apache-ant-1.6.1-bin.tar.bz2
Set the ANT_HOME environment variable and update the path:
export ANT_HOME=<Installation Directory>
PATH=$PATH;$ANT_HOME/bin (on Windows : PATH=%ANT_HOME%/bin;%PATH%)
bcel-5.1.tar.gz from the Jakarta
web site and install bcel-5.1.jar in the directory
Download the binary version of JOnAS with Tomcat or Jetty from the ObjectWeb
forge web site.
Choose a location for the JOnAS installation.
Be aware that if you have already installed a previous version of JOnAS in this location, the new installation will overwrite the existing files, thus customized configuration files may be lost. Therefore, it is prudent to save these files before starting the installation process.
The installation process consists of untaring the downloaded file.
Change to the directory in which JOnAS will be installed and untar this file, using
tar -zxvf jonas.tgz command. Note that this file can be
opened with winzip on Windows.
After installing the JOnAS product, set the following environment variable:
export JONAS_ROOT = <Installation Directory>
PATH = $JONAS_ROOT/bin/unix:$PATH (on Windows: PATH=%JONAS_ROOT%/bin/nt;%PATH%)
Before using JOnAS, complete the following setup activities:
JETTY_HOMEenvironment variable has already been set, it should be unset. JOnAS will set these variables, without requiring any modifications.
<data source>.properties(templates are located in the directory
$JONAS_ROOT/conf). Then add the data source file name (without the extension
.properties) to the
jonas.service.dbm.datasource <data source>
javax.mail.internet.MimePartDataSource. Two types of files that can be adapted to fit your installation are located in the directory
MailMimePartDS1.properties. Then, in the
jonas.propertiesfile, define the
If the Setup step has not been
completed as described, JOnAS may not work.
Use the command
jonas check to verify that the
environment is correct.
If the environment is correct, JOnAS is ready to use.
jonas start, then use a browser to go http://localhost:9000/. (Modify this url
with the appropriate hostname.)
From the root context in which JOnAS was deployed, you can execute the earsample, access the JOnAS administration application, as well as perform other functions.
