      Description

      I think your installation team needs to put some more work into the setup
      program for Windows in the UR1 version:

      My understanding of the profiles is that the cluster and enterprise profiles are
      for production use, and the developer profile is for developer's computers. I
      want to install SJSAS 9.1 into production using the setup program. I noticed
      that the setup program does not give me the option to choose a profile and
      installs the developer profile by default. Why? I had to hunt down this blog
      entry to help me upgrade to cluster profile:

      http://blogs.sun.com/anilam/entry/admin_console_series_add_cluster

      Does turning on cluster support really configure the application server to the
      equivalent of "cluster profile"? Are the any production optimizations that
      cluster profile does?

      Once I added cluster support, the Windows service asks me for a password every
      time it starts. I've been through that before with Glassfish V2. I had to
      delete the Windows service created by the setup program, then re-create it again
      using the tool on this page using the -p option for password.

      I've found a few more issues:

      • The installer program talks about the location of a Java 2 SDK, but it really
        wants my Java 5 or 6 JDK.
      • The screen where it gives an option to create a Windows service cuts off the
        last line of text, I have to resize the window to read it.
      • When I select "Add to PATH environment variable" checkbox, it adds it to my
        user environment variables instead of the system environment variables. The
        user I am currently logged in as has administrator privileges.
      • The dark gray background reminds me of Java in 2001
