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:
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
